    Dryopteris intermedia is an evergreen large fern. Whenever it shows up in the yard I either leave in its original location or transplant the young plants to a more suitable spot. It has a pleasant overall growth habit and does not spread. I highly recommend it as a garden plant.
    First photo is from the summer, leaf details pictures are from now. Last photo is leaf underside.

    I do enjoy some evergreen plants in the garden at this time of the year, whilst eagerly waiting for the trees to wake up. Lovely shadows and detail on the closeups N.

    Lovely combination with the maple, rock and moss.
