Thelypteris kunthii

Fern, Southern Shield

This native southern fern is a large pale green spreader.  The large finely cut upright and arching fronds are deciduous.  It received considerable publicity in a Southern Living article which suggested it could be grown in full sun.  We recommend that it be planted in moist fertile soil in shade or semi-shade.
