Garden Snippet: Matteuccia struthiopteris- Ostrich fern

fern

 

Ferns?! I adore ferns. Especially this one. In the right conditions the fronds can reach 6 feet in height! How cool would that look in your shade garden? Ferns like to be cool and moist, but will take a little filtered sun. I especially think they would look cool amongst some dark leaved coral bells or epimedium. They are also a common fern in cultivation, and easy to find in your local garden center.
