Polystichum munitum

Western Sword Fern

This beautiful and long-lived evergreen fern provides a lush look to the landscape with texture and color year-round. Each frond may reach four to six feet long and will live for several years. Once established, the deep roots make it quite drought resistant, especially when shaded. The NW indigenous tribes baked or boiled the large rhizome for food. Trimming old ice damaged fronds in the spring will provide a fresh new flush of growth. This wonderful Native American plant is very low maintenance, easy to grow and almost completely pest & disease resistant. Deer donít seem to care for them either. Full sun or part shade depending on your part of the country. The mature height can reach a dramatic 5 to 6 feet and arch out with a spread of 4 feet or more. In most gardens, a 3-foot dome shape is common. A wide range of growing zones from 4-8.
