Hi Karina. Yes you can grown ferns in containers quite easily. I probably would plant one that is evergreen though. The foliage of the fern (Onoclea sensibilis) in the photo dies back to the ground every year. I would suggest an Alaska Fern (Polystichum setiferum) in a container. I hope this helps!

Hi glenna,

It is easy to switch photos from one ideabook to another ideabook.

- Go to your ideabook which contains the photos you wish to move.
- Click the button: "Organize" (right side)
- If you want to move more than one photo at the time, press the left "Ctrl" key and hold it down.
- Select the photos you wish to move by click on it.
- Click on the Button: "Move the Photos to..." and chose the Ideabook you want

Regards,

Hi missy me,

The ground cover is Soleirolia soleirolii (Baby's tears). It's hardy here in Vancouver but it browns out a bit in the winter. I hope this helps!

The grass is Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'. It's an excellent grass for part shade/shade area. (Common name is Japanese Forest Grass) I like the 'All Gold' because it's brighter than other cultivars of Hakonechloa. I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Focus Your Garden Palette
Refreshing greens. Green is the backdrop of all gardens, yet with a careful choice of plants it can make a wonderful color-theme planting. The foliage in this border is both soothing and refreshing and makes me think of the traditional temple gardens of Japan.
The combination of hostas, ferns and grasses in this photo provides layers of texture that create visual interest, even though there are no blooms.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Theme Gardens
A green garden, which depends on foliage rather than blooms to provide the color, can still be surprisingly complex. Even within the single-color guideline, you'll find foliage and flowers that range from yellow to gray and everything in between.
Le jardinet added this to Monochromatic Garden Magic Done 7 Ways
Shady woodland gardens are one of my favorites to design. Their success depends largely upon combining interesting foliage textures and playing one shade of green off another. This design beautifully partners Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola') with assorted hostas, astilbes and ferns. The result is a soothing medley that will thrive in partial shade, in average to moist soil, in zones 5 to 8.

Possible plantings for the back corner once the benches are removed. These plants would add brightness to an otherwise dark area. These would also look great in and around small boulders and around the urn.
