Ferns

What would
shade gardeners do without
the fine, lacy foliage
of ferns to complement their broadleaved hostas and silvery
Pulmonarias? Though they have
been grown for hundreds of years,
ferns still play an essential role in
the landscape today. They come in colors
ranging from solid green to silver and
orange, but it is their finely textured foliage and ease of culture that make them so
popular.
CULTURE
Though they may appear delicate, ferns are
actually tough plants that can adapt to many
different environments. Most grow best in a
woodland type of environment: partial to full
shade and rich, moist soil.
GROWER TIPS
• Watering: Good irrigation practices are
essential when growing ferns. Plants
need to be kept moist, but not soaked,
from the time they are potted up until
the time they are planted in the ground.
It is best to water early in the day to
allow the fronds plenty of time to dry
before nightfall. Allow the soil to dry
slightly between waterings.
• Fertilizer: Ferns can be sensitive to high
salt levels incurred from fertilizing. Use
about half of the amount of fertilizer you
would use with other perennials.
• Lighting: To prevent sun scorch in summer, grow ferns under at least 50% shade
in the north and up to 70% shade in the
south.
• Timing: Ferns should be planted before
mid-August or the following spring to
ensure survival. Potting them up early
will give them an adequate amount of
time to become established before wintering over. Upon receipt of your order,
it is best to place them in a cool, shaded
location.

Athyrium felix-forma
‘Lady in Red’
ATHLR20, ATHLR72 (Lady Fern) Dark
green, upright fronds with deep burgundy
stems. (Note: This burgundy color takes
2-3 years to develop.) Pair with purple
heucheras to really help the stem color
stand out.
30-36in/Z3-8/20 & 72ct T
Athyrium ‘Ghost’
ATHGH20, ATHGH72 (Ghost Fern) A hybrid of ‘Pictum’ and A. filix-femina. Frosted
apple green fronds emit a ghostly white
light in the shade. Dark purple stems hold
the broad fronds rigidly upright. This selection is taller than many other Athyriums.
Athyrium niponicum ‘Pictum’
ATHPI20, ATHPI72 ( Japanese Painted
Fern) Silvery-grey fronds are dusty purple
towards the center. Purplish-red veins
and stems. Low, mounding habit. Spreads
slowly by rhizomes.

Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’
Matteuccia struthiopteris
MATST20, MATST72 (Ostrich Fern)
Green, pinnate fronds are shaped like ostrich plumes, being much wider at the top
and tapering to a bare stipe. Turns bronzegold in fall, then brown in winter. Spreads
rapidly by underground runners. Needs
moist soil.
3-6ft/Z3-7/20 & 72ct T

Tips for Growing Gaillardia
Successfully
• Keep flowers pinched out of
Gaillardia until the plants are
bulked up.
• Once roots are established, apply
Pistil or Configure to promote
lateral branching.
• Grow Gaillardia on the dry side
with moderate fertility.
• Grow under high light levels;
prefers long days.
Asexual propagation prohibited.

Tips for Growing
Geraniums Successfully
• Start smaller size plugs in
late summer to bulk plants
up for spring sales.
• Grow at 65°F with moderate
moisture levels.
• Fertilize with 150-200ppm N
constant liquid feed or with a
moderate rate of slow release
fertilizer.
• PGRs can be used effectively
if necessary.
