Hardy in the UK to low temperatures male fern Dryopteris filix mas suits gardens up and down the country. Not only does it show off handsome leaves it offsets other flowers nearby that suit shady conditions like foxgloves and rhododendrons.

Perfect to add character to parts of the garden that receive part to full shade like under garden trees or in north-facing flower beds. The leaves emerge from the bottom of plants from spring and look great as they develop with surrounding crocuses, snowdrops and primroses.

Useful Tip:

Though Dryopteris will grow in dry shade it performs better in moist soils. You can add soil improver like rich compost which makes the existing soil moister and with a better structure
