One of the ferns that I have loved growing over the past few years is a variety called Kangaroo Paw Fern. The large fronds and snake-like root system make for a beautiful presentation.
I have had the two large ones on my front porch for over three years. I am quite lucky they have winterized well.
I also have several in pots around the garden.
About the Kangaroo Paw Fern:
Kangaroo Ferns, native to Australia and and some parts of New Zealand, are epiphyticevergreens with firm leathery fronds that are oddly shaped and vary in size. It’s an example of a rhizomatous fern. The Kangaroo Fern only grows to be about a foot tall but can spread out to 2-3 feet in width. I really like how different this easy care plant is and think it looks very attractive in a hanging basket or set on a table in a pretty pot.
Kangaroo Paw Ferns, y'all!
