Dryopteris buschiana correctly known as Dryopteris crassirhizoma is despite its name a superb, large fern originating from Russia. It develops into a stately miniature tree-fern-like fern with lush shuttlecocks of robust deep-green fronds which emerge in early spring covered in thick brown hairs.
It is semi-evergreen, some years remaining evergreen throughout. Ultimately the base develops into a stout, small trunk and the overall plant reaches a meter high and wide.
Dryopteris buschiana is an easy fern to grow, creating a dramatic specimen plant and it more tolerant of dryer soils than most ferns. As ever, we recommend adding good compost when planting and keeping well watered until established.
