Polystichum munitum (Western Sword Fern) is an evergreen fern native to western North America, where it is one of the most abundant ferns occurring along the Pacific coast .
Western sword ferns abound in the forests of the Northwestern U.S.
They are robust, reliable, and virtually maintenance-free.
They put up with difficult soil and manage to keep up appearances even in hot, dry weather. Their deep green, leathery fronds are attractive year-round.
Provide partial to full shade and fertile, well-drained soil. Trim off the oldest fronds each spring. Very shade tolerant. Height 90cm - 100cm x 70cm wide.
