These are lovely plants. It's great to see ferns in the woods that are still bright green while everything around them is turning brown.

I have never grown this fern. Hmmm I will have to check into it. I thought this one wouldn't live in my zone. If it lives in your zone hey, it is a good bet it will here. Ferns are my favorites. Especially one that will stay green for so long.


Thanks so much for this post (especially--but so much here to be grateful for!). I'm hoping the Arum varieties will do as well in a WI winter. Another good tip from you--this blog is also going in my gardening bookmarks.

Thank you so much for complimenting my posts and linking to them. I am especially excited that you were inspired to think more about your fall garden and moving winter ornamentals closer to where you walk in the off season. It makes all my hard work worthwhile.

Lovely post and I love the pictures! keep them coming I thourghly enjoyed it


Lisa — I had a little trouble getting this fern established but now it seems pretty hardy. They look deadish in the Spring because most of the greening at that season comes from new growth which is a bit late (like most ferns).

CEN — The Arum has made it through the last 3 winters with good snow cover but no special mulch. It comes up early, disappears when it gets hot and then comes back again in the fall.

I need to put some of these ferns in because the ones I have pretty much brown up in September. I am farther north than you, maybe they won't make it through a Green Bay area winter.
