Dryopteris affinis 'Cristata'

Common name golden-scaled male fern
Family dryopteridaceae
Life cycle perennial
Size 2-5'
Light part-full shade

Large evergreen fern, with copper-toned scales on the first fronds to emerge in spring.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
