Dryopteris filix-mas is one of the commonest ferns in Europe, particularly in the British Isles. It has been cultivated as a medicinal plant for millennia for treating pain, fever, infection and is particularly effective in treating tapeworms! The common name Male Fern was ascribed by the Ancient Greeks due to its robust constitution (Lady Fern being the delicate and lacy Athyrium filix-femina). It is one of the most accommodating ferns for the garden. Although tolerating a wide range of conditions once established, semi-shade and moist soil produces the most attractive plants. Like any deciduous plant remember to allow space if planting when dormant!
