Polystichum acrostichoides, commonly called Christmas fern, is a perennial, evergreen fern native to eastern North America, from Nova Scotia west to Minnesota and south to Florida and eastern Texas and naturalized in Europe.

Common name: Christmas fern
Color: Non-flowering
Bloom time: Non-flowering
Height: 1.00 to 2.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Growing a Christmas fern outdoors requires minimal effort. Christmas tree ferns do best in an area that receives part shade or full shade, although they will tolerate some sun. These ferns, like other outdoor ferns, enjoy moist, well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant Christmas ferns after the last frost, placing them 18 inches apart and deep enough to hold the roots without crowding.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Dry to medium

Temprature: 65 to 75 degrees F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • The care of Christmas ferns is not difficult.
  • Ferns should be watered once a week, or as needed to keep soil consistently moist but not overly saturated.
  • Without adequate moisture, ferns will experience leaf drop.
  • During the hottest days of summer, pay particular attention to watering.


Special Feature:
Dryish or moist soils in woodland gardens, shade gardens or shady areas of borders, wild or native plant gardens. May also be planted in shady areas along walls or foundations. A good plant for massing on slopes (including dryish, rocky ones) to help combat soil erosion.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Medicinal use of Christmas Fern: Christmas fern was employed medicinally by several native North American Indian tribes, who used it to treat a variety of complaints.
  • It is little, if at all, used in modern herbalism.
  • A tea made from the root is blood purifier, emetic and febrifuge.

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
