Fern Plants Benefits in Landscaping
Fern plants are a great addition to any garden where it is difficult to get other plants to grow. Ferns offer the benefit of being able to flourish in shady spots, delivering a huge and impactful amount of color, being low maintenance, and make great companion plants. No matter what your reasons are for adding them to your landscaping, fern plants are sure to provide your garden with many benefits.
These are some planting guidelines to consider if you are interested in adding ferns to your garden.
Ferns are short and stocky plants, have a distinct green color, and are recognizable by their large fronds
Each type of fern plant has a distinct type of frond, or leaf, with some of them being feathery while others are thick.
Hardy Zones of Fern Plants
Most hardy fern plants can grow in zones four to eight when all their growing needs are met.
Bloom Season and Color
Ferns do not produce blooms so they have no blooming season. However, the leaves of fern plants have a long growing season and produce several rounds of fern leaves.
Fern Plant Height
Fern plants generally tend to grow as high as one to two feet tall, but some are just a few inches tall when they are mature.
Soil Type Preferred By Fern Plants
Most varieties of fern plants prefer growing in soil that is moist and well-draining, closely representing the soil naturally found in wooded, forest floors.
Sun or Shade Preferred by Fern Plants
Ferns typically prefer growing in shade, which is why they are great for landscaped areas which are deep in shade but need something to fill the space. Ferns that are grown in low to the partial sun can do well, but those grown in full sun will struggle.
