This fall (2019) we've managed to source a variety of unique, unusual and hard to find ferns for the discerning collector or houseplant maven. Most of these are not hardy in our climate and must be brought indoors before any chance of frost occurs. Enjoy!

 

Golden Zebra Fern

Golden Zebra Fern / Striped Bamboo Fern

Coniogramme emeiensis ‘Golden Zebra'

This striking indoor fern features narrow dark green leaflets with lime green stripes. Great in containers. Hardy in warmer climates, but best over wintered indoors (Hardiness Zones 7-9). Can be grown in full to part shade. Reaches a height of 18 in and spreads to 24 in.
 

Birds Nest Fern

Birds Nest Fern

Asplenium nidus

This attractive fern is usually grown for its foliage. Upright, vase shaped fern is evergreen in warm climates (Hardiness 9-11). Foliage is solid, wavy and apple green in colour. Vague resemblance to a birds nest. This fern adds form and substance to summer gardens, terrariums or as a houseplant. Water regularly. Protect from frost! Best grown in part shade. Can reach 5ft by 3ft in size!
 

Silver Ribbon Fern

Silver Ribbon Fern

Petris cretica ‘Albolineata’

This attention-grabbing fern features arching pale green fronds with white central patches. Slow growing. Likes high humidity in full to part shade. Great for summer containers or indoors. Bring inside before frost!
 

Heart Fern

Heart Fern

Hemionitis arifolia

This tropical fern forms tufts of evergreen glossy green heart shaped fronds on black stems. Fertile fronds with arrowhead-shaped leaves stand above the foliage. Bring inside before frost (Hardiness zones 10-11). Prefers shade to part shade in neutral to acidic, rich organic soils. Can grow 10 inches in height and 12 inches spread.
 

Staghorn Fern

Netherlands Staghorn Fern

Platycerium bifurcatum ‘Netherlands’

This pre-historic looking fern features pale green broad fronds and forked tips. Evergreen in warm climates and epiphytic. Good for mounting! Mount on trees, a board, walls or in a moss hanging basket. Avoid drying out! Popularly sold as a house plant, if displayed outdoors bring in before frost (Hardiness 9-11). Best grown in part shade. Can reach 2ft high and 3ft across!

Tasmanian Tree Fern

Tasmanian Tree Fern

Dicksonia Antarctica

This slow growing tree fern displays arching bright green fronds in a full head. Trunk is covered with reddish-brown hairs. Ideal for shady borders, accent plantings and along walkways. Prefers moist, well-drained soil with consistent water during hot weather. Can reach 16ft tall and 12ft spread in warm climates. Should be brought inside in our climate (Hardiness 9-11). Shade to part shade.
 

Brazilian Tree Fern

Thrives in neutral to acidic loose, rich, organic soil. Keep soil evenly moist. Shade to part shade. Can reach 3ft by 3ft in size
 

Licorice Fern

Licorice Fern

Polypodium glycyrrhiza

This somewhat hardy fern (Hardiness 6-9) is a popular foliage plant for indoors or out. Mounded fronds can reach 8-12 inches in height. Excellent in landscapes or containers. Best grown in shade to part shade
 

Silver Lady Fern

Silver Lady Fern

Blechnum gibbum ‘Silver Lady’

This evergreen fern develops a trunk with maturity. Gives the appearance of a tree fern, but at a much smaller size. Can reach 36-48 inches in height and 24-36 inches spread. Best in shade to part shade. Protect from frost (Hardiness 10-11).
