The immense number of species in the fern family means that there is a fern for every soil and situation in the garden. From majestic, eye-catching palms, such as the gigantic royal fern (osmunda regalis), to soft feathery ferns and pretty climbers such as Asplenium ferns, these easy-to-grow perennials thrive in semi-shade and make excellent companion plants, bringing a touch of green and gold to any garden.
