These tightly ruffled, bright green fronds form a compact, carefree mound that adds a fanciful flair to the shade garden. A superb companion for dark-leaved Heucheras and Asarum. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
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. For more information, click on Growing Guide.
