Ferns are perfect for the back of the garden or in a woodland setting. Their gracefulness makes them especially well-suited for companions to hosta. They can perform well in sun but prefer partial to full shade. They are easily grown in well-drained, organic-rich, acidic soils and spread slowly by creeping rhizomes to form large colonies. Ferns have no serious insect or disease problems. High summer heat may cause fronds to brown by mid to late summer, particularly if soil moisture is not maintained and/or plants are exposed to too much sun. Divide in autumn or late winter to keep them from spreading. They are low maintenance and perform well under deciduous trees surrounded by leaf litter.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.

ORDER MINIMUM: A $175.00 minimum order on items supplied by DeGroot is required. Orders not meeting the minimum will be charged an additional $25 processing fee.
