Exotic Ferns For a Fresh Look
When we say ancient plants we mean it! Although the term ‘fern’ is not a scientifically recognized qualification, plants we call ferns are some of the oldest plants on Earth. There is also great diversity within the category. Even when going through our edit, you'll see the variety of colours and shapes that ferns come in. One common thread amongst ferns is, that they tend not to reproduce through flower or seed but via spores.
One of our bright green, luscious faves is the Crispy Wave Fern. The name is pretty apt, as you’ll see: it's got thin, wavy leaves that bring life to any room. As a hardy fern, it just needs some natural light and moist soil – but never let it sit in water.
It's time to out a fern that isn't actually a fern! The so-called Asparagus Fern is actually a proud member of the Lily family. It has long, wiry stems with very fine leaves, giving it a fulsome yet wispy appearance. As it matures, your Asparagus Fern will shed that look and throw out tendrils to climb. During the late summer months, it may produce sweet flowers that will eventually give way to purple berries.
