Don't be put off by the seemingly unpronounceable Latin fern names, they can intimidate. This group of ferns are the staple ingredient in many of our planting compositions in the shade, their form contrasting so well with bolder foliage, or to provide rhythm and harmony within the fussier planting of a collectors corner.

Simply scoll through the pages the plants below, click on the genus/cultivar names to see more plants of these types or use our search page to look for something specific.
