Glade Crest Ferns
The Glade Crest Ferns are commonly found near streams and rivers in eastern portions of the United States, although it has been known to grow in forested areas across the country. It prefers a wet, wooded area for its habitat, so if planting for personal use make sure you place in rich, damp soil that receives plenty of moisture and consistent shade. The plant looks best when situated between rocks, as the green provides a sharp contrast to the color of the stone, and when kept trimmed. It gives some ground cover, is excellent at retaining moisture on the underside of its fronds, and will prevent soil from becoming too dry, although it tends to form large bushes that the customer needs to manage if space is a consideration. The stalk is dark, green, hairy, and has scales at its base. Its fronds are jagged in appearance, but only a little rough when touched.
Christmas ferns are considered the most popular on the fern family because they maintain their beautiful green color even in the coldest winter months. The Christmas fern also adds brilliant year-round color to any garden as long as they are planted in partially shaded areas and do not get exposed to direct sunlight. Christmas ferns reproduce easily as long as the roots are divided into smaller plants during the springtime when the fiddleheads or spores are newly sprouted. To ensure healthy new growth, Christmas Ferns should be planted right below the soil surface away from direct sunlight. These ferns are mainly found in the heavily wooded areas along streams and hillsides. They also assist with the environment by controlling erosion. Although the ferns do not spread, the fern clumps will increase in height size over time.

Favorite among nurseries and home & garden stores, the plant can be used for decorative lawn purposes and to create lush greenery in flower beds.

The plant can grow to heights of almost 2 feet and has a moderate spread. The New York Fern has Rich green fronds and small leaflets that taper as they reach the plant's base.

Containing the spore packets for the plant, these reproductive fronds are cinnamon brown giving the Giant Cinnamon Ferns its namesake. The leaves of the Giant Cinnamon Ferns are oblong and oval and are twice divided, meaning the individual blades are subdivided into pinnules.
