Dryopteris filix-mas 'Parsley'
Male Fern
zones 4-8
 
Description:  The 'Parsley' fern is incredibly unique and will stop you in your tracks when you see it! It's hard to resist reaching out to touch its dark green, crinkled and  crested foliage that somewhat resembles parsley. The Male Fern is a vigorous grower that is robust in stature and matures quickly compared to other ferns. Even young plants exhibit the crinkling and cresting. It's great for mass plantings (it does not spread by runners, but rather stays in a clump).
