Sword Fern, Polystichum Munitum

The sword fern is a wonderful plant it is also know as a western sword fern. Within the plant it transports nutrients and hormones. The Sword Fern is easy to transplant and move when the fall months come. The plant prefers shade and will grow indoors. The plant grows about 3 feet high. The Sword fern is known for its lovely colors and the way that it can bring attraction and site to any home, yard or office. The Sword fern has fronds that resemble swords so thus giving them their name of being a sword fern. This fern is one of the many that can be used in cooking even though it has a rather bitter sweet taste to it.

The Sword Fern is easily one of the most popular indoor plants on the market, growing happily in pots with minimal attention and care.

With bright green leaves that grow in a tight clump spreading from the base, and a pleasing symmetrical shape, this evergreen fills all sorts of spots quite nicely and its leaves are popular additions to flower arrangements. It enjoys dampness, shade, and humidity but does nicely in a hanging planter with some misting and partial light.

But it is equally happy outside, making a great addition to informal gardens. It is a tough plant that does very well in shady woodland areas, but thrives in full sun as long as it is watered well.

A good choice to line paths, add some color to rocky hills, or accent water features, it also does nicely for mixed borders, serving as a contrasting backdrop for flowering perennials. Grown in groups they provide dramatically lush fillers for difficult areas.
