Growing ferns is a great way to add color and interest to your garden and landscaping, especially in any hard to grow areas.
Because there are so many different varieties of ferns, there is sure to be something native to wherever you live that can thrive. Their color and interesting foliage make them great as focal plants, cover, or multi-season interest when everything else is done blooming or dying back.

Ferns are distinct between varieties, but every type has a few key features. Vivid green foliage, tall and thin spikes that radiate from the center of the plant, and thin broad leaves. The leaves are where to look for interest, with the majority of variety happening here. Depending on your specific hardiness zone, the ferns that you choose to add will impress with their unique leaf blades.
Fern Hardy Planting Zone
Most ferns can grow well in hardy zones 3 to 9, but some can grow in zones 2 to 3 as well.
Fern Growing Season
While ferns do not bloom, they do have a very distinct growing season that lasts from April to September making them a great choice for long-lasting garden color and interest.
Ferns come in all varieties, and depending on the type of the hardy zone they are planted in can grow to be under one foot tall to as big as forty feet in height.

Most ferns are shade-loving plants, but everything from low light to full sun preferences can be found among different varieties of ferns.
