Christmas Fern is a terrestrial evergreen fern producing narrow, lance-shaped green fronds 24 inches long. Fronds narrow abruptly toward tips. Grow in fertile, rich, well-drained soil in deep or partial shade. Grow in a rock garden, fernery, or well-drained border. They grow in a central form called a shuttlecock, and look good in a woodland garden. Keep them neat by cutting off dead fronds. It is resistant to deer and good in a border.
