Dryopteris Ferns

Dryopteris Filix-mas:

 

Ferns have been around since the dinosaurs, so they are a very successful plant species. This fern tolerates damp shade and dry shade as well as some sun – so it’s a really good garden fern to have.

 

Now some may think ferns are a little boring as they do’t do much, but consider this – no West End Show would look half as spectacular without a backdrop, and ferns make a wonderful backdrop!

 

In fact we love ferns especially this one because it’s so versatile, so we’ve used in in loads of designs.
