Isn't it interesting that plants that seems so delicate, at least in texture, can be so resilient about the cold? I like using ferns too, although I'm really only familiar with two: our native river fern, which is deciduous, and holly fern, a non-native evergreen. If only I had a stream or moist location I would try maidenhair fern, which I love.

Yes, Ihave tried maidenhair fern many times but we get too hot and dry for it around here. I have a couple of still green ferns but they are covered with snow and ice right now. The autumn fern by the house is still visible. Ferns are one of my favorite plants.


Those are really pretty. Lots of variety there. I want to try to get more ferns in my garden this coming year. I had no idea how hardy they would be that far north!
