Ostrich Ferns - $4 (Lexington)

Beautiful Ostrich ferns...shade and part sun preferred. I do have some in full sun and they are doing well too. This image is what they will look like when mature. Native plants. Grows 2-3" tall.

Tall fronds unfurl in late April-early May, giving a wonderful canopy of contrast to blooming ephemerals.This large yet elegant vase-shaped fern is very popular and often planted in open shade gardens. The long arching light-medium green leaves are slender at their bases and widen dramatically before their tips, thus its namesake. Spreads widely by underground runners. A deciduous (non-evergreen) fern.

Prefers open shade and moist, humus rich soil. Will tolerate some sun if kept moist. Leaf mulch will benefit its growth tremendously.

$4 each or 3 for $10.
