The Shady Nook Fern Collection is a sensory delight with lush texture, distinctive plant forms, and unique color combinations. Marginal Woodfern provides a stoic backdrop of somewhat upright fronds that arc gracefully over the lower-growing plants in the collection. The elegant, lacy fronds of Northern Maidenhair Fern spread in a circular pattern forming airy layers that will slowly spread into dense colonies over time. The decorative Red Beauty Japanese Painted Fern illuminates the shade garden with silver-tinged foliage lined with burgundy veins and stems. This low clumping fern makes a soft groundcover beneath Marginal Woodland Fern. It’s perfect for adding texture in established shade gardens and creating accents. Pair ferns with boulders for a natural focal point. Purchase the collection in multiples for filling space beneath trees and in shady nooks throughout the landscape. Accent the delicate texture of these ferns by pairing with the broad-leafed Lush Hosta Collection.
