Ferns are one of the oldest and most abundant families of plants on earth, existing in various forms for hundreds of millions of years. Their fronds and frills have inspired botanical art for millennia, and in Victorian times, “Fern-Fever” or Pteridomania swept the nation.

People around the world still enjoy these ancient and graceful plants in nature, gardens, and inside their homes. With an astonishing array of shapes, sizes, and shades of green, you’re sure to find one (or many) to enhance your space.
