Fern Plants, by themselves or combined with other plantings, make spectacular border plants. Most ferns do well in part shade or mottled sunlight, but there are many which tolerate quite a bit of sun, provided they are well-watered.
Ferns first appear in the fossil record 360 million years ago and come in a fantastic range of texture, color, sizes, and shapes. Their versatility and ease of care make them an essential part of a well-rounded garden.
