Polystichum acrostichoides

Christmas Fern

Very popular for arrangements during Christmastime. This fern's fiddleheads are often called Santa's boot and luckily, can be planted outside and harvested during the winter as it is cold tolerant! While the reindeer are out waiting for Santa in your yard, you're safe because this plant is deer resistant! It will grow in almost any condition and is a native to eastern North America.
