(Common Male Fern)

Common male fern is a large deciduous fern native to many temperate regions of Europe, Asia and North America. Its large, glossy green fronds arise from an erect rhizome. With greater height, the fronds tend to become ever-so-slightly arching.

Like most ferns it excels in shade and moist soil, though once established it will tolerate some sun and drier conditions. Nearly any soil pH type is acceptable as long as there is organic matter incorporated. Common male fern performs well in woodland borders...

(Southern Wood Fern)

The Southern wood fern is a semi-evergreen, perennial fern, which is native to the swamps and woodlands of the southern United States; ludoviciana is a Latinized form of Louisiana, which gives further clues to its preferred habitat. The upright, leathery, dark-green fronds are evergreen in their southern-most regions, and deciduous in cooler climates. Bronze spores are scattered along the frond, especially at the base. Southern wood fern, like most ferns, thrives in moist, acidic, humus-rich soil;...

(Marginal Wood Fern)

Marginal wood fern is an evergreen fern native to eastern North America, from Canada's Quebec province southward to the American states of Kansas and Virginia. The leathery, grayish green to blue-green fronds arise from an erect rhizome. Forming a non-spreading clump, the overall habit is V-shaped.

Marginal wood fern grows very well in shade and moist soil, though once established it will tolerate drier conditions. It makes a perfect addition to mixed borders, wildflower gardens, and rock gardens...
