The unique textural quality of Christmas fern is also useful in creating what I refer to as a living tapestry. Weaving together similar-height plants of different shapes, textures and colors, as shown here, can add invaluable interest to the predominantly green and sometimes monotonous woodland garden floor.Planting notes. Christmas fern is best planted in moisture-retentive soil, although established plants are somewhat drought tolerant. If you’re planting these ferns in a drier part of the garden, water them regularly several times a week until they are well established. These ferns will greatly benefit from the addition of mushroom compost or composted cow manure in the hole at the time of planting. If you are planting in consistently wet soil, consider raising the rhizome slightly above soil level and planting at an angle to reduce any chance of crown rot during winter.It is well behaved in the garden, spreading slowly on its own, although the rhizomes can be divided in early spring if desired.More:Ferns: A Shade Gardener’s Best FriendBrowse more Houzz guides to gardening
