Description

Dryopteris affinis Pinderi Golden Male Ferns. 2 Litre Pot Grown Plants

Delivered by Mail Order Direct from our Nursery with a Year Guarantee

Pinder’s golden scaled male fern, Dryopteris affinis ‘Pinderi’, develops characteristic golden scales along the leaf mid-ribs. The young fronds that unfurl from a central crown are a vivid chartreuse yellow-green colour in spring, turning deep green as the season progresses.

A vigorous native fern, ‘Pinderi’ is hardy and easy to grow, and its neat shuttlecock shape and attractive foliage make it a worthy addition to any border. 

The slender fronds are perfect for adding volume to flower arrangements. Use the foliage as the neutral backdrop to allow more colourful blooms to shine.

Our ferns are delivered as pot-grown specimens, available year round.

Growing Dryopteris Ferns

They love a moist, humus rich soil, and prefer dappled shade with shelter from wind. In the North, you can protect them from frost with fleece, or by trimming the leaves and covering the crowns with straw for winter. Cut back the old fronds in winter.

Dryopteris are generally easy to grow and care for. You might occasionally need to tackle pests like slugs and snails, but good gardening practices, such as appropriate weeding and feeding, together with our range of organic garden products, will help keep your plants healthy and beautiful.
