Ostrich Plume Fern
Reviewed By: Amanda (Bloomington, Indiana)
This is an excellent plant. I worked on the ground before I planted it but the ground is still hard clay and it grew well. I would recommend this plant for its hardiness.

Great Fern
Reviewed By: Russell (Lawrenceville, NJ)
Very happy w/ this fern. Thrived in a very shady part of my yard where almost nothing else grew, and is a beautiful plant that takes care of itself. Haven't tried other ferns to compare but def would recomend this one.
