Design IdeasPerfect Fern for bringing down high walls in enclosed gardens, atriums and walled courtyards. Place against a vertical surface to encourage bending or let it stand alone as a centerpiece. Most attractive when grouped into a Fern dell, which is refreshing in hot climates. Keep away from hot or persistent winds.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
