Evergreen ferns keep the garden looking lush in winter.
Here the Autumn Fern (Dryopteris erythrosora) adds texture to the camellia walk, (above & below)
so does the Arborvitae or Moss Fern (Selaginella pallescens) (below)
and the Tassel Fern. (Polystichum polyblepharum)
Seating, painted matt black, does not detract from the real interest..STRUCTURE & PLANTS!
This is after all, a garden. ( I am all for a touch of whimsy… just not here.)
The individual differences in seedlings will always amaze me. Below, Toad Lilies (Tricyrtis hirta) that seeded themselves.
Finally… why I do not want curtains.
( Mom, this is for you)
Gorgeous garden and I am so with you on that seating and the lack of whimsy in the garden!
i adore ferns. i could have a whole garden with just ferns and be happy. i think.
I’ve never had toad lilies reseed themselves, that’s wonderful to know it can happen!! I love when nature takes care of itself and it’s all a surprise to me.
love ferns, they are so good at all time of the year
Cannot imagine curtains in your house. Never realized they weren’t there till this post.
Your garden curtains…………
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
