Ferns have earned a spot in shade gardens

▪ I’m in love with ferns! These long-lived perennials deserve a prominent spot in your shade garden. These plants prefer morning sun and afternoon shade or shade all day.

They are tough, hardy and easy to maintain once established.

Or, for gatherings of friends and family to celebrate special days like Memorial Day weekend, birthdays or Father's Day.
