Finding Unique Ferns for the Woodland Garden

By Published April 27, 2019 Updated November 23, 2022

Those gardeners who are in the market to buy ferns for sale this year will be pleased to learn that we have added quite an impressive number of new fern species to our newest catalog. We find ferns texturally interesting and have obtained two hard to find crested selections of the European Hart’s-tongue fern, Asplenium scolopendrium ‘Cristatum’ and ‘Crispum’. Ferns can indeed be quite texturally interesting and have the added feature of being deer resistant. Another popular fern that looks fantastic in the woodland garden is the Cinnamon Fern or Osmunda cinnamomea. The Cinnamon fern is a native deciduous species of fern that sheds it's foliage during the winter months. During spring, the foliage forms rises above other low-lying woodland plants and produces long, cinnamon-colored spikes that sprout from the middle of the clump. These gorgeous ferns can read up to 3' tall and 3' wide in idea conditions.

If you’re in the market to do more than buy ferns for sale, lucky for you that you ended up at Plant Delights Nursery! We are indeed one of the most fully stocked and knowledgeable nurseries about perennials including hardy garden ferns. Our goal is to create beautiful gardens all across North America and around the world, filling them with native and exotic perennials that will thrive and flourish for years and years.

Ferns are mostly shade plants but there are varieties that thrive in sunny conditions. Sun ferns love full sun and can grow in very rocky conditions with little soil or shade. Most fern plants are drought tolerant once established but generally do best with regular water. Try pairing your ferns with other shade loving plants such as Trillium or Aspidistra.

When you order perennial plants and flowers from Plant Delights Nursery, you don’t simply receive your plant order in the mail and never hear from us again. Quite the opposite! We want to be there every step of the way as you go about planting your gardens so that you experience the most success possible. Let us tell you exactly how we help our customers succeed. Give us a call today or visit us on the web for more information or to shop our online store.
