Add easy-care color and texture to woodland gardens, native plant gardens and shaded areas with the Native Woodland Fern Mix. This random mix includes ferns of various sizes and green shades. Ferns are some of the easiest shade perennials to grow and perform best in partial to full shade and moist soils. This makes them a good choice for planting along shaded water features, ponds and streams. Low maintenance plants, ferns are rarely bothered by insect pests or diseases. Deer tend to pass them by.
