Plants By Type
Deer Fern - Blechnum spicant
Deer Fern is gorgeously striking, with fronds showing a glossy black stem and plush, emerald green leaves. The leaves also feature a texture that is unique. This makes the deer an ideal fern for highlighting in a garden- it also works as a ground cover in shady areas. They are almost maintenance free, requiring simple pruning of any dead fronds. They are even hardy enough for full sun provided adequate moisture is provided. They remain green and lush through winter when they often act as forage for deer, elk, and other animals. To attract wildlife to your home or garden in winter, try planting Deer Fern! Thee ferns can grow to be as tall as three feet and also be as wide as three feet. They create beautiful borders around gardens, sidewalks and also long driveways. They also look amazing when planted around a fence to create a natural looking border, and they also supply a lot of bright color to an area. They thrive when planted in full and partially shaded locations and love being in areas that bring moist and well-drained soil conditions. Climate zones three through nine are the best for these types of ferns to grow. The fronds of this fern are not as large and thick as others, but they are just as beautiful. They look amazing when several are added around the trunk of a large tree or planted with other flowering perennials that produce a lot of colors when blooming.
