Dryopteris affinis is also known as Golden-scaled male fern. This fern gives visual rhythm to the woodland garden. The lower sets of pinnae are attached at an angle to the stipe, while the upper ones are flatly in line with it. The result is a slight cock in the direction of each frond. Golden hair-like scales are visible on the reverse sides of the stipes.
