An easy shade lover and exquisite hybrid, 'Ghost' combines the elegant, upright growth of our native Lady Fern with the ghostly silvery gray coloring of Japanese Painted Fern. Contrasting red midribs heighten the effect. Perfect behind Hosta 'Hadspen Blue' and Heuchera 'Obsidian'.
Hardy Ferns are the most ornamental of foliage plants, and their near infinite diversity guarantees that every garden can make good use of them. Ferns require little care and will thrive in many locations that would discourage fussier plants. Most prefer slightly acid, woodsy soil and require shade (meaning full protection from summer sun). Regular moisture is also necessary, which mulch helps preserve.
