    Ferns arrived quickly, so pleased with that. I have planted them as of Feb 23, 3 in pots, 3 in ground. As they haven't had time to sprout , I can't give much of a review yet. If you are interested in their success, I will give a review later. Thanks

Sword Fern 

 

 

The sword fern has been growing increasingly popular in home gardens recently due to its hearty nature, simple care, lush evergreen beauty, and versatility.

 

Hearty Nature

 

 Sword fern grows well in a variety of situations, including a wide range of soil and sun conditions. Native to the wooded pacific northwest, it appreciates shady and partly shady moist areas. However, it also tolerates drought conditions well, and it can thrive in sunny areas if kept wet. It is rated as hardy in USDA zones 3-8.

 

Simple Care

 

 Once established, sword fern requires no watering under most circumstances. Care and upkeep are minimal if any.

 

Lush Evergreen Beauty

 

 The sword fern's bright green foliage remains lush and lovely throughout the winter. Multiple sword-shaped fronds form a graceful sweeping mound, approximately three feet in diameter, height and width. Mature plants may reach a six-foot diameter. Each frond, known as a fiddlehead, grows out of the center of the plant, reaching up to six feet in length on mature specimens. Dozens of leaflets, numbering up to a hundred, grow out along its stipe (spine). Young fronds unfurl from the center of the fern each spring as they grow in their distinct and delightful manner.

 

Very Versatile

 

 The sword fern is a versatile plant that thrives in a variety of situations. It makes an interesting ground cover and an effective measure against erosion. It makes a lovely addition nestled between trees or filling in the open areas in a garden with its distinctive texture and shape.
