Fern Plants Grab bag - 20 Plants Perfect For Your Zone 

Fern Plants Grab Bag

Ferns are non-flowering plants that offer fantastic texture and versatility with their beautiful arching green fronds. Because of this, ferns command attention when they are planted alone, but they also add a stunning backdrop for the shade garden, making them excellent companions for flowering plants. Useful in mass plantings, ferns also add drama when used in borders or as accent plants. Individual fronds make beautiful additions to arrangements of cut flowers and bouquets.

There are more than 380 varieties of ferns in North America, in varying shades of green, providing a variety of exciting and ornamental patterns. Although they are similar to flowering plants, with roots, stems, and leaves, ferns reproduce differently by spreading tiny spores or by the growth of bullets. A bullet is a little vegetative bud that develops on the fronds of some ferns. When the bullet comes in contact with the ground, it can take root.

Ferns average one to three feet in height, as well as diameter, and are slow growers. Most require evenly moist, well-draining, humus-rich soil and regular watering. The ground should not be allowed to dry out between watering times. Different varieties need varying amounts of shade. They have few pest problems.

Perennials that continue to grow for years, ferns may be propagated through division, preferably in spring. The greenery should be watered first, then gently dug up and divided into two or three clumps which can then be replanted. Fiddleheads are the rolled up fronds seen when a fern experiences growth.

One of the most popular ferns is the Boston fern, loved for its showy fronds which can reach up to five feet in length. Though often displayed in hanging baskets, it is also a great addition to the garden. It thrives in high humidity and temperatures in the 60's and 70's.
