Dryopteris goldiana

Common name Goldie's wood fern
Family dryopteridaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Size 3-4'
Light part-full shade
Cultural notes prefers cool, moist soil

Native to the northeastern US and Canada, where it is the taller wood fern species. Fronds are deep green. Clumps spread slowly; they die back in winter after turning yellow in fall.

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