Native Ferns, New York Kinda Ferns

My friend's gardener cleared her backyard of everything. It had knick-knacks and just random garbage everywhere. She decided that she had enough and wanted to transform her garden into a place where she can relax and unwind. She thought, "ferns would be great around the yard." She tried to get native ferns, a variety of them. She asked her gardener to suggest and procure the ferns for her. She wanted him to build her garden as if it were his own.

 

 

He was looking for at least one fern that stayed green even during bad New York winters. He said that Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) did precisely that. It stayed green, even in the winter. It's not invasive so she can have other plants near it. It grows to at least a foot in height and prefers shaded areas. "Perfect," she said. He also wanted a dash of color among the ferns. He recommended Cinnamon ferns (Osmundastrum cinnamomeum) to her. Cinnamon ferns have a brownish color in the middle of the plant that almost looks like a feather popping out of it. She mentioned that she was fond of ducks. He said to her, "when you look at this fern, you can visualize ducks floating nearby." Even if she didn't have ducks in her backyard, he would put these by the pond. The gardener said that they could reach four feet in height and also likes shady areas. Another fern he was interested in was the Lady fern (Athyrium filix-Femina). He said that he would put these by her wooden boardwalk type pathway. He said, "they look as if they were telling someone to keep going to see what's up ahead." "They grow to be larger than a foot tall and can tolerate some sunlight" he further added. He also mentioned getting Maidenhair fern (Adiantum pedatum). He suggested putting these by her wooden deck near the pergola where a misting fan will be installed. They grow to be about a foot or more in height and prefer full shade. The gardener said it was best to put them closer to the backyard door so either one of them can move them inside if needed.

 

 

 

It was all coming along. The theme, the ferns, and the backyard. She was considering getting some hammock as well. Soon, her yard will be a place to relax, reflect, and meditate.
