Dragon tail fern

I think I have a fern fetish.

Many of my plant acquisitions this season have been ferns, despite the fact I have very limited shade in the garden. I keep thinking of my sister’s former garden in St. Paul, where her entire garden was composed of ferns. It was really lovely.

This fern has such interesting leaf shapes, and the whole gesture of the plant is a little wild, while also being organized.
