Perennial Ferns for Shade


 

If you find yourself looking for plants for that shady landscape and you are running out of ideas, this is very normal, as there are so much fewer options for shade than those areas drenched with sun. Ferns are great shade loving plants that are hardy throughout most of the United States. They give a natural look to a landscape, as they can be found everywhere growing wild under the forest canopy. Let’s take a look at some of the more cold hardy ferns that would look great in that shade garden.
