The winter garden can be a depressing place. Most of the color is gone and there is not much to look at on those drab days. We found a variety of plant that changes that outlook, hardy ferns. We stopped by Sebright Gardens (503-463-9615) to visit with Thomas and learn more about these great winter plants.

These hardy ferns can take pretty much anything that nature can dish out. Thomas showed us some of his favorite ones in their display garden including; Polystichum setiferum plumoso multilobum, the Lace Fern ‘Microlepia strigosa’, the Mexican Male Fern ‘Dryopteris pseudo Filix-mas’, Polystrichum setiferum ‘Congestum Christa’, and the Beaded Wood Fern ‘Dryopteris bissetiana.
Tough names to pronounce that fit the tough plants they describe. These plants like dappled shade, light fertilization and well drained soil. For more information on these plants feel free to contact Sebright Gardens.
