Description / Thelypyeris Southern River Wood Fern

Thelypyeris Southern River Wood Fern is a deciduous to semievergreen perennial fern offering spring through fall interest. Grown for its gorgeous foliage, Southern River Wood Fern produces an elegant, open plant with excellent form and texture. Its arching fronds emerge light to medium green, take on a bronze cast in fall, and go brown as they die back in winter.

An herbaceous plant, Thelypyeris Southern River Wood Fern has a fountaining growth habit and a fast rate of growth. It spreads easily by rhizomes to form colonies but is not aggressive or invasive. Highly adaptable, it adds a wonderful texture to foundation plantings, planters, and hanging baskets. It's a great option for erosion control and soil stabilization on banks and slopes.

Easy to grow and low maintenance, Thelypyeris Southern River Wood Fern prefers full to dappled shade and rich, moist, sand, loam, clay, or limestone soil. The plant prospers in the heat and humidity of the Deep South and tolerates poor drainage as long as the soil is loose. It can survive brief dry spells but will not survive soils that completely dry out. Cut back before new growth appears in the spring. Deer proof and heavy shade tolerant.

A native plant, Thelypyeris Southern River Wood Fern is indigenous to Texas and the southeastern US. It is found mostly in forests and woodlands but also grows in wetlands and along stream banks. Native plants are not only beautiful but also environmentally friendly. Naturally adapted to the climate and soil conditions of the region, they thrive without fertilizers or extra watering, once established. They also act as natural pest controls, reducing the need for pesticides in the garden. Landscaping with native plants promotes biodiversity and provides shelter and quality food for wildlife and pollinators, bringing gardens to life.
