Dryopteris Affinis

Dryopteris affinis, commonly known as the Scaly Male Fern, is a semi-evergreen perennial fern species native to Europe, Asia, and North America. It is known for its long elegant, arching fronds. These fronds are a vibrant, glossy green colour and have a distinctive scale-like texture on their stalks and undersides. This fern thrives in moist, well-draining soil and prefers shaded or partially shaded areas, making it an excellent choice for woodland gardens or shaded borders. Dryopteris affinis is valued for its ornamental beauty, adding a touch of lush greenery to garden landscapes.
