The Q&A Archives: Growing an oak fern

Question: What location should an oak fern be planted in? Where can it be purchased? What climate does it grow in? Would it grow in Wisconsin located around lake Michigan?

Answer: Common oak fern (Gymnocarpium dryopteris) does best in a moist, rich soil with plenty of organic matter. It should be hardy in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. A good retail nursery or garden center in your area, especially one specializing in perennials andnatives, would offer it.
