Polystichum braunii, commonly called Prickly Shield Fern, is a semi-evergreen fern with twice divided, green to dark green fronds. New growth has a silvery flush. Fronds radiate from a central point.
Ferns thrive in cool, moist, neutral to acidic, loose, richly organic soil. Excellent for mass plantings, rock gardens, containers, in woodlands and naturalized landscapes.
