Do you have a place that's made in the shade? Try the Adiantum pedatum (Western Maidenhair Fern) featuring elegant lacy, soft, green fronds with dark centers. This native, deciduous fern is excellent in containers or shade gardens and available at Westport Winery's nursery.
"Christmas Ferns" are popular because they are one of the few ferns that will stay green all winter long. The Christmas fern serves as a wonderful host for butterfly larvae. Being an evergreen fern, the Christmas fern will add color to a garden all year round, and the fronds of the plant are often given at Christmas time, as the name suggests. Christmas ferns occur in both dry and moist wooded areas, moist banks and ravines.
Fortune's Holly Fern | Exceptional fern for interesting form and texture. Fronds are stiff, upright and dark green arching outward from the center of the plant. Fast-growing; 1'-2' tall and 1.5'-2' wide. Full to partial shade.
