"Planted them around my pine tree in a shady spot. They are beautiful, delicate looking and easy care."

There's a reason ferns are in almost all cut flower arrangements!
For background, for contrast, or just for their beautiful arching fronds, ferns give a flower garden a texture nothing else can.
From large to small, they're great for your shady areas, but there are some that don't mind a sunny spot. And remember, a fern nearby makes every perennial that blooms just as beautiful as an arrangement in a vase. Show off your best blooms with these beautiful companion plants.
The Ostrich Fern is a grand, native plant from the American woodlands. It will thrive in a wet, shady area of the garden. This Fern gets its name from plumes that resemble ostrich feathers. (Matteuccia struthiopteris) More Details
As the name suggests, this Fern is easy to grow and tolerates full shade to partial sun. A foliage plant all season long, plant amongst your favorite flowering-plants for a textured, green backdrop. (Crytomium fortunei) More Details
This delightful groundcover produces pink fiddleheads that evolve into copper-orange as they open. As the season progresses, the fronds turn to dark green and stay green into the winter months. A must-have for any shady spot. (Dryopteris erythrosora) More Details
Vibrant, burgundy-colored stems create a dramatic contrast with the bright-green fronds. Loving moist, shady areas, this fern creates a vibrant statement on its own or paired with your favorite flowering plants. (Athyrium niponicum pictum)
