Fern Friday: the Christmas Fern

Huntsville Botanical Garden talk about an evergreen fern

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - For this edition of Flower Friday, we are switching it up with a fern. Which fern you ask...well, the Christmas fern!

The Christmas fern is a wonderful evergreen fern that is extremely hardy in our climate. Its fronds are evergreen and provide color throughout the year. The name actually comes from the fact that its fronds are green during the holiday season and because each leaflet looks like a little green Christmas stocking!

Not up for adding it to your landscape? This guy does very well in containers.
