The Profile

Autumn Fern

The modern southern garden should include a variety of ferns. Autumn Fern is an evergreen variety you should consider planting on the grounds as the fronds can be relied on throughout the year to provide bold, green color to arrangements. The fronds & blades are sturdy holding up well long after blooms they accompany fade so transfer them to different vessels to make new arrangements that can be displayed throughout your indoor space. Place them on bedside tables, vanities & kitchen sink ledges for instant impact.

How To Create Beautiful Arrangements With Autumn Fern

Lovely flower arrangements should change with the seasons so begin by choosing items currently in bloom. Savvy southerners know to have distinctive, indigenous garden varieties planted around their outdoor space that can be used for a number of occasions. These arrangements are designed to be effortless & fast to prepare since entertaining involves many fine details as the event draws closer. Autumn Fern is a shade-loving perennial that may be used in a variety of ways when entertaining as just a few fronds are needed to really make spaces shine.

Once you are familiar with several plant varieties, making your own flower arrangements can be fun & fulfilling. If you don’t have these garden staples growing in your green space, select & plant one now from a local nursery to use in a number of lovely ways. Snip & gather Autumn Fern early in the day to pair with a variety of flowers such as Narrow Leaf Zinnia & Velocity Blue Salvia for sweet & simple arrangements. Autumn Fern can grow rather large so simply cut one frond & use just a few of the larger pinna near the base. In order to do this, trim it away from the axis using garden shears & remove several of the pinnules or subleaflets to create a long enough piece from the pinna so that it will stay hydrated in the vase. Conversely, consider creating bold florals by using Autumn Red Daylily with them.
