Western Sword has dark green, glossy, sword-shaped fronds with numerous small leaflets on each side of the stem to give them a lush, dense appearance. This fern does its best in moist, well-drained soil and is well-suited for shady or partially shady locations. Once established it will take droughtlike conditions. A wonderful addition to plant under trees, in shaded spots and borders for texture. It's relatively low maintenance, simply benefitting from removing old fronds in early spring to encourage new growth. Deer resistant.
