Leatherwood Fern is commonly found in damp, heavily shaded areas.

Leatherwood Fern (Dryopteris Marginalis) is a shade-loving native perennial across the continental United States. It is commonly found in damp, heavily shaded areas, primarily within forests and woodlands. The plant forms a single dense clump at maturity, standing two to three feet in height. The plant has distinct curled leaves that grow to 13-15 inches. They are of a vibrant gray-green and velvety to the touch. 

In general, the plant prefers loamy, moist soils. However, it is adaptable and can thrive in various soil types as long as it remains sheltered within a fantastic garden. The plant excels in regions like the Pacific Northwest, with high annual rainfall. In the wintertime, the leaves retain their color. This hardy yet elegant fern adds interest to any winter landscape. 

 Leatherwood Fern is deer resistant.

The best time to plant these bulbs is during early spring. Due to the dense nature of the plant, the bulbs should be spaced at least two feet apart and planted at a depth of two inches. Location is crucial to the plant's survival, so you should place bulbs or transplants in heavily shaded areas with little to no sunlight. 

Leatherwood Fern has numerous attributes that make it increasingly popular with the everyday gardener.

It is resistant to deer, a plague to gardens across the United States. The plant does not spread once it is established, making it easy to maintain within an area of a flowerbed. The plant adds a touch of beauty to areas of the garden that might usually go underutilized. The plant's shade-loving nature makes it well-suited for beds along the north and south-facing sides of homes, which tend to receive minimal sunlight.
