    Perfect!

    Posted by Judy on 21st May 2016

    It is the perfect size for a natural area and even a flower garden that is located in a shaded area.

    Disappointed

    Posted by Jilco on 12th May 2016

    It was really cute, but followed all the instructions and it died in about 3 weeks. The plant came with bent leaves and some dying already so perhaps it was a bad batch. The company is supposed to be sending more.

Description

Leatherwood Ferns are best planted in areas that are like woodlands.

They are native to north-eastern North America's forests. This plant has leathery green fronds. These leathery green fronds are arranged in a single-crowned clump. The foliage color is a deep green color giving it this lovely dark green foliage that is semi-evergreen. The fronds grow in a vase shape and then tapers to a point the blades then are lance-shaped and leathery hence its name. They are best used in woodland, like wildflowers, in containers, as a border. This plant has the unique accent, texture, and form. It will grow best in gardens that are moist, with dark conditions to it. This type of plant is secure and reliable. Leatherwood Fern is suitable for color.

Leatherwood Fern has gotten their name due to their appearance; their fronds look somewhat leathery and thick.

It does just as good indoors as much as it does outdoors, it is not as vibrant as many of the other Ferns, but it is considered semi-evergreen which means it will still add color and vibrancy to a winter garden. It will look good as a border to a garden, or in a backyard with a lot of shade. If you have a garden that has the right conditions for this plant, it will make a beautiful addition to your garden. These plants are easy to grow in the right circumstances, and plants that will stay looking nice if it lives in the right conditions.
