The Black Wood fern is so-called because of the dark, almost black scales covering the black leaf bases and crown. This, when contrasted with the bright green fronds, makes the plants extremely appealing. It has a strong habit of growth and robust leathery leaves the leaflets of which bear serrated margins. Exotic gardeners wil notice the specific name, which acknowledges the plant's passing resemblance to a cycad and makes growing Dryopteris cycadina all the more pleasing - reinforcing a particular habit of growth in a different plant group is always satisfying!
