More Information About Deparia
Deparia is a genus of roughly 50 species of ferns with native members everywhere in the world except western Asia, Europe and South America. The name deparia comes from the Greek "depas" (saucer) and refers to the shape of the spore cover on the back of the frond.
Over the years we have found a handful of deparia ferns that do well in our Raleigh garden and occasionally produce these ferns for sale. Deparia are generally medium-sized ferns and may be evergreen or deciduous.
Like most ferns, deparia prefers partial shade and rich, well-drained, consistently moist, woodland soils. In general, deparia ferns are adaptable and easy to grow...perfect for the beginning fern gardener. Most deparia species will spread slowly into a small colony. Try combining deparia with acanthus, danae or farfugium to make a nice woodland garden mix.
