1 review(s) for JAPANESE PAINTED FERN

  1. Angela - Oct 21, 2007
    Atoka, OK (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    These beautiful ferns have drawn many compliments from the church attendees who love the new shady prayer-garden we landscaped almost entirely with Sooner Plant Farm plants. We mixed these ferns with hostas and hellebores around a moving water feature and "flowing" river walk (dry creek bed) and the effect is truly stunning at times. I am not a huge fan of ferns in generally but these are well worth trying out in your shade garden.
