Common names: Broad wood fern or broad buckler fern
Dryopteris dilatata, commonly known as broad wood fern or broad buckler fern, is a semi-evergreen, deciduous wood fern whose wide-spreading, finely-cut, triangular fronds rise upward and outward from its central crown in a form somewhat reminiscent of the shape of a large shuttlecock. “Broad” part of the common name is in reference to the wide-spreading fronds.
