The scaled male fern, Dryopteris affinis 'Crispa', is a hardy evergreen fern that grows to 20cm. It has a spreading habit with finely divided, arching fronds that are a glossy dark green colour. The fronds are also crisped, meaning they have wavy edges that give them an interesting texture. This fern prefers a moist, well-drained soil in a partially shaded spot. It is a great choice for woodland gardens or shady borders, providing a year-round splash of greenery.
