If you only grow one fern then this has to be a strong candidate. The golden Male fern is exceptionally tough and accommodating, withstanding full sun, dry soil and even exposed windy positions. Yet it still comes up uncomplainingly and puts on a show - dark green fronds, golden scale-covered stalks, black caudex and a beautiful regular crown of leaves. Dryopteris affinis has many selected cultivars and forms, any of which are worth growing.
