While it's not bright colors, the subtle shades and textures are why I love this fern. The leaves almost look more silvery than green.

Lovely. All the different orientations of the fern fronds keep my eye dancing around in the image. Quite enough to hold my interest without any bright colors.

These ferns add so much unique completion to landscaping or floral composition; besides being hardy and longer lasting than most ferns. Give them, and you credit for bringing them into our view.

Thank you. I really love ferns, both inside and outdoors, but the subtle colors of this one just really stands out every time I see it.
