Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) is a low maintenance, low water-use plant. It also tolerates poor soil and acidity well, making it a great choice for pots, baskets, and window boxes. As an added bonus, the plant’s light green foliage and feathery appearance will brighten up your garden or window box. It often forms thick mats of vegetation which can be used for erosion control.
