Best Native fern Choices For Native Landscaping
The best native ferns for landscaping are those that suit your landscape. If you live in a wet climate, you might look for fern varieties that tolerate the moist conditions associated with rainforests. You might also want to consider varieties that produce fertile fronds as well as sterile fronds. Consider these fern varieties for your native landscaping:
1. New York Ferns
These will do well in any soil type, from rocky to loamy to sand. They can even survive in areas with little access to water. They are also one of the most heat-tolerant ferns out there. That means they'll be able to thrive in climates where other ferns might not be able to grow. They are also resistant to deer and other pests.
2. Hay Scented Ferns
These ferns have a triangular frond with a broad base and long stalk above the pinnae. The stalks above the fronds often grow into bushy leaves that resemble hay. The leaves are dark green on top with lighter green undersides, covered in fine hairs. The edges of the leaves are rolled upwards, making the leaf look like it is smiling. They are suitable for native landscaping because they do not need a lot of water or maintenance.
3. Christmas Ferns
The Christmas fern is a deciduous perennial that can be used as a groundcover or shrub. It also does very well in high humidity locations like west-facing slopes, which makes it very useful in northern states and areas that are coastal or humid year-round.
4. Glade Ferns
The glade fern is a deciduous fern that is considered a wetland plant. The plant is perennial and grows in a clumping form to produce fronds of up to one meter in length. They are an excellent choice for native landscaping because they require little maintenance and thrive in all soil types. They are also tolerant of shade and can grow under trees, providing an excellent ground cover for hard-to-maintain areas.
