Ferns are a wonderful addition to the shade garden, with a variety of unique textures, from soft and deeply cut to bold and lance-shaped. Available in sizes perfect for low edgings, taller backgrounds or filler. Combine with hosta, astilbe, and jacob's ladder for a nice blend of texture and color. Prefers moist, acidic, humus-rich soils.
