Hay scented ferns? I like the look. What about fire and water?

I have yet to understand gardens in sunny places without grasses, and I feel the same about woodlands and ferns. Ferns are old, simple and graceful plants that can be extremely effective

Birch clumps with ostrich ferns or hostas.
A sea of sword ferns swaying in unison to a summer breeze-- this should calm us down.
Ferns immediately come to mind when we think of shade gardens, and for good reason. They have been on Earth for more than 300 million years. Most ferns inhabit temperate and tropical forests, where they flourish in shady, moist and humid conditions. There is something primally satisfying about this diverse
of plants, which is reason enough to include them in almost any environment in which they will grow.There are, however, many other reasons to plant ferns. Let’s take a look at eight of them.

would this fern grow in Northern Georgia?
Are ferns generally deer-proof? This is a beautiful setting.
What variety of fern are in the picture? Thanks.
The ferns we used here are a staple in just about any woodland garden we design. It is called haysented fern, (Dennstaedtia punctilobula). Plant it in areas where you have erosion, and be prepared to let it

spot, consider using more grasses to dominate the ground plane. If the area is shady, consider adding more trees and using ferns for groundcover.This beautiful garden has masses of fern covering the ground plane and groves of birch sited to create some intrigue beyond — it's simple, bold and calming.

what kind of ferns are these
Would ferns grow under Norway Maples?
We have 3 old messy Norway Maples in our backyard. Love the shade from them, and really don't want to remove them, however, they suck the life out of everything under them. Just love this photo with these lush ferns. Do you think
think ferns could grow under the Maples? Thanks so much for your insight.
so these would be considered tropical and couldn't grow in southern Canada? I picked up some Cinnamon ferns which resemble these but have a brownish flower.... my front yard is so similar to this, it is truly magnificent, all though you have the beauty of
