Beech Ferns

Thelypteris hexagonoptera
Commonly called the Broad Beech Fern (because of the long stem, I refer to it as The One Legged Fern), it is readily grown in a woodland garden, the striking triangular blades yeilding an attractive effect. The rootstocks lengthen rather rapidly, however, so its spreading far and wide is to be anticipated.

Two feet to over four feet in the right soil and conditions. It appreciates a rather sunny location in a dry to semi-moist spot VS the overly moist and dappled light required of many ferns.

To my mind this fern wears a brighter, fresher, more delicate green than many of her sisters in a family. She is a less delicate plant than some, the effect of the larger and older specimens being rather hardy, yet its downy, often light-green, triangular frond is exceedingly pretty, with a certain odity of aspect which it owes to the lowest pair of pinna, these being deflexed and turned forward. This whole peculiarity ( leaves tilt backward from an upright stalk (one leg)) gives it a decided individuality and renders it easilly identifiable.

This Fern ships begining in April as semi-dormant roots and are shipped until they are to large to ship by Priority Mail.
