Fiddlehead Fern

Fiddlehead Ferns in the form of Ostrich Ferns or Matteuccia Struthiopteris can quickly grow in the backyard garden. The young fronds of these ferns are commonly cooked and eaten like any green leafy vegetable. From the time of germination, it takes a year for the ferns to produce the young spiraled fronds which are the edible part of the plant. They grow in partial shade to full sun and require frequent watering, making them ideal for shade gardens.

Ferns for Zone 7 are deer-resistant for the most part

Each plant will produce seven fronds and can reach a height of 6 feet. For the plant to remain healthy, only 3 of the fronds are harvested before they open. Over-picking leads to the death of the plant. Fiddlehead ferns can be grown in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 7, and they are a deer-resistant garden foliage plant.

Spleenwort Fern - Aspleniaceae

The spleenwort fern family encompasses many varieties, but each has similar characteristics. Spleenworts prefer rocky soils. In nature, they are found growing in granite, sandstone, and limestone crevices. This makes them superb choices for shaded rock gardens. The ferns grow best in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 8, though some varieties can tolerate warmer and colder temperatures. All spleenwort ferns prefer shaded environments and moist, well-draining soils. Since they grow naturally in rock crevices, they do well in slightly acidic soils that are rich and high in humus. The tallest varieties reach heights of 18 to 36 inches, while most reach heights between 5 and 8 inches when mature. The spread of the plant is generally equal to its height. None are flowering, and most die back during cold months, though not wholly. Spleenwort ferns are valuable in the garden because they provide a flush of green in otherwise dark, shaded areas. They offset flowers and last longer than many annuals, providing your garden with color throughout the growing season. During the winter months, erect fronds provide silhouettes and improve a landscape's presentation. Spleenwort ferns are low-maintenance plants and are available in a range of different hues, from bluish-gray to deep green fronds, and some varieties have black stems and variegated patterns. The leaf patterns also differ between types, but all lend your garden a deep texture that other plants rarely provide. Some growers choose to plant ferns along borders with wooded areas, beneath shady trees, along shaded walkways or terraces, or in containers as specimen plants. For specimen plants, choose varieties with distinctive features such as leathery leaves, glossy leaves, intricate net patterns and swooping or arching fronds. These unique plants provide visitors with a memorable display, uniquely when placed in shaded entryways or as focal points in rock gardens.
