- 3 blue sea holly, which I’m going to plant in among my roses in the front garden for contrast,
- 2 bleeding hearts for the back garden,
and the following ferns:
- Hay scented – can grow up to 24 or 36″ high, and will take any amount of light. They recommend putting it near a pathway so its fronds can be bruised and crushed, releasing the scent.
- Ostrich hardy – 24-60″. Might be aggressive. Might be what I already have in the back yard!
- Christmas – 24-36″ high, does well in full to partial shade.
- Maidenhair – 12-24″, black stems, medium shade
- Sensitive – 12-18″, sunshine or shade.
- Lady — 24-36″, partial shade
- Cinnamon – 24-36″, can go from wet, swampy to dry shade.
- Toothed wood – 12-24″, really lacy, semi evergreen!
- Leatherwood – 24-36″ semi evergreen, often used by florists, they say.
- Royal fern – 36-48″ — this is a tall one! I will probably place it between some of the hostas to add some height.
Tonight I’ll use my indelible marker on popsicle sticks so I know what is planted where, and tomorrow I will plant and water. Have only had about a millimeter of water in the last week.
