The Shady Nook Fern Collection is a sensory delight with lush texture, distinctive forms, and a unique color combination. Marginal Woodfern provides a stoic backdrop of upright fronds that arc gracefully over the soft groundcover provided by Red Beauty Japanese Painted Fern. This decorative fern illuminates the shade garden with silver-tinged foliage lined with burgundy veins and stems. The elegant, lacy fronds of Northern Maidenhair Fern form airy layers throughout.

The Shady Nook Fern Collection is perfect for adding texture and accents in shady parts of the garden.

Pair ferns with boulders for a natural focal point, or pair with broad leafed Hosta to accent their delicate textures. Purchase the collection in multiples for filling space throughout the landscape.
