Few plants make as elegant an entrance in Spring as ferns. Though delicate looking many of them are tough, suviving droughts and extreme cold with little obvious stress. I have so many kinds of ferns in my garden that they have their own category in my plant card catalog!
Auriculate lady fern (Athyrium otophorum)
Wood fern (Dryopteris crassirhizoma)
Most likely Lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina 'Lady In Red')
Stableri wood fern (Dryopteris x complexa 'stableri')
Maidenhair fern (Adiantm pedatum)
Japanese painted fern (Athyrium goeringianum pictum)
Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides)
