From miniature 6″ plants to large 6 foot giants, there are so many varieties of ferns that you are sure to find some that will thrive in your garden.
Better yet, many of these are native varieties which are really easy to grow since they are so well adapted to the climate.
While most ferns prefer shaded areas, you can also find some that grow in full sun.
The one thing that they all have in common? They need consistent moisture.
So check your local nurseries to find the ferns that suit your situation the best.
