"Christmas Ferns" are popular because they are one of the few ferns that will stay green all winter long. The Christmas fern serves as a wonderful host for butterfly larvae. Being an evergreen fern, the Christmas fern will add color to a garden all year round, and the fronds of the plant are often given at Christmas time, as the name suggests. Christmas ferns occur in both dry and moist wooded areas, moist banks and ravines.
