FERNS Fabulous foliage components integral to your gardens or containers; within this selection of ferns you’ll find the addition you need: either lacy, delicate, small, bold, or large. All can be overwintered as house plants. They need lots of humidity, indirect light and should never dry out.
ADIANTUM (Maidenhair Ferns) The Maidenhair Ferns are finely foliated evergreen plants. There are over 200 species.
 
caudatum (Trailing Maidenhair) A caudatum is unusual for a maidenhair fern as it has long narrow cascading fronds. New growth emerges pink then matures to a apple green. Fronds will cascade 12-16", adding an elegant flowing quality to shade planters.
 
fragrantissimum (Fragrens) Light airy fronds, triangular shaped foliage on glossy black stems make this a popular variety for containers. Easy to maintain as a houseplant.
 
hispidulum 'Rosy Leaf' An interesting maidenhair fern cultivar having delicate red tinted new growth.
 
microphyllum 'Little Lady' A dwarf maidenhair, compact and charming. Adding an ephemeral quality to mixed shade containers.
 
peruvianum 'Silver Dollar' A bold strong grower with large leaflets of silvery-green. Adds a nice course texture to mixed containers. 18" X 12"
 
raddianum Commonly called Delta maidenhair fern, and its perhaps the most commonly grown of the non-winter hardy maidenhair ferns. Triangular, 3- or 4-pinnate fronds with dark stalks.
 
ARACHNOIDES simplicior 'Variegata' (East India Holly Fern) This charming fern is evergreen with dark green leaves and bright yellow variegation down the midrib. Will grow up to 2'
 
ASPARAGUS Not of the vegetable variety or a true member of the fern family, these so called ferns are a lovely addition to home plants. They are, believe it or not, a member of the lily family. You can often find them used in window boxes and hanging baskets, in coordination with mixed flowers. They like humid conditions with filtered sunlight.
 
setaceus (Plumosa Fern) Rich green delicate foliage, with thin wiry stems that form to create soft feather-like patterns across long twinning stems. Great filler for arrangements. Prefers full light but will tolerate low light conditions.
 
ASPLENIUM This popular group of ferns is prized for its frond symmetry, frond texture and sheen and great growth habit.
 
antiquum 'Victoria' (Japanese Birds Nest) Long, leathery, glossy apple green leaves emerge from the center of the crown, with wavy edges. Long lived house plant that gets additional character with age. Very showy. 20"
 
bulbiferum (Mother Fern) A beautiful tender fern with lacy foliage of light green. A great textural and color accent for shade gardens.
 
dimorphum 'Austral Gem Fern' Growing to a height of 20” tall and about 24” across. The thick yet delicate fronds are so glossy that they look fake!
 
nidus (Common Birds Nest Fern) This Fern will give you lots of naturally glossy leaves arranged in a circular pattern which resemble a bird's nest (hence the common name for these houseplants).
 
BLECHNUM brasiliense crispin (Red Leaf Tree Fern) New central growth on this tree fern is bright red, as leaves mature they fade to light green. 3'
 
DAVALLIA fejeensis (Rabbit Foot Fern) Finely textured foliage with creeping furry rhizomes. Grows quite large (1x2') over time. Looks really neat as a hanging plant.

exaltata 'Ritas Gold' Vibrant golden yellow foliage adorns this boston fern family member. Fronds grow to about 18" and make nice foliage accents in deep shade.
 
obliterata 'Australian Sword Fern' Upright growing from 2 - 4 feet. Great vertical accent plant withstanding sunny dry conditions.
 
PELLAEA roundifolia (Button Fern) An low-growing fern with small rounded, button-like leaves that line its wiry, burgundy-red stems. Makes a beautiful accent. Enjoys filtered sunlight. Up to 10".
