Christmas fern

Christmas ferns (Polystichum acrostichoides) stay green year round. In the upland hardwood forest on our property, the ferns form small thickets that give us patches of green in our drab winter landscape.  Added bonus:  they make great additions to cut flower arrangements, both green and dried.
