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

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 Lady Fern
