          Comments about American Meadows Fortune's Holly Fern:

          I am beginning a shade garden and used this plant as a foundation for astilbes I also planted. They were big and lush almost immediately. Great background pallet for color. I love them!

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
