Southern Wood Hardy Fern is a fast growing fern with upright fronds. It is light to medium green with dainty-looking foliage. Don’t let the daintiness fool you, it is a tough plant! Southern Wood spreads through rhizomes that radiate outward underground. This southern native can live in wet or dry, shady conditions. It was first discovered in our southern border neighbor, Louisiana, in the 1800s.
