Dryopteris Cycadina is a neat rosette type fern that is also known as the Shaggy Shield Fern or the Blackwood Fern.
An attractive low growing deciduous or semi-evergreen (depending on the climate) this shuttlecock fern originates from China and Japan and has lovely light green fronds with stems peppered with tiny black scales.

Dropteris Cycadina grows as a medium size clump with an arching habit. A beautiful little fern that works well when underplanted with Japanese Acers. As these ferns grow in woodland settings they also work so well when planted with other varieties of ferns beneath taller trees in a sheltered area.
Like most ferns the Shaggy Shield fern prefers partial shade, or full shade, and any well drained fertile soil. Max height and spread 1 metre.
