No shady garden should be without Ferns. These hardy perennials are some of the most ornamental foliage plants, providing a long season of interest with pale green shoots in spring, lush greenery in summer, and beautiful color in fall. Our selection below includes a range of varieties, from tall, upright fronds that resemble flower spikes to delicate, lacy greens with intricate leaf structures. Ferns require little care and will thrive in many locations that would discourage fussier plants. They are also deer resistant.
