Comments: Useful as a ground cover and effective in rock and woodland gardens. Ferns are well adapted to grow in woodland landscapes and other naturalistic sites where humus has accumulated over an extended period. The humus helps to conserve moisture and buffers soils from extremes in soil moisture and soil temperatures. Fertilize ferns a couple of times during the summer months to encourage new foliage growth.
