Broad Beech Fern would look great in a garden bed.

Broad beech ferns are typically 1 to 2 feet long, triangular, and have a bright green color. A green, leafy material characterizes the central axis of the blade part of the ferns. It requires a shady area with moist soil to do well. Broad beech fern, scientifically known as Phegopteris hexagonoptera, is a typical plant of the maiden fern family. Its native environment is typically in moist undisturbed hardwood forests. It can often be seen growing near maple and beech trees. It is an herbaceous flora that grows to the height of one to three feet. Like other ferns, it is not a flowering plant, but its aesthetic value is indisputable. The broad beech fern has fronds growing singly along the anchoring rhizome. The rhizome grows as a creeping feature so that the plant will fill in your garden quite well. The fronds are bipinnate and triangular, and they have a bright green color which can complement other plants.

The Broad Beech Fern green shade is retained throughout the growing season.

The broad beech forest fern is native to the eastern parts of the United States as well as the adjacent Ontario region. However, it can be grown almost anywhere because of its general resilience. Ideally, the broad beech fern thrives exceptionally when the base soil is moist and well fertilized. The natural humus that is found in the ground due to the decay of organic material like leaves usually is sufficient in ensuring good initial and continued growth. It will grow relatively rapidly in home gardens, and it does not require special care and maintenance to promote healthy development. In general, this fern is a perennial plant so that you can enjoy its long-term presence on your property.
