Ornamental Ferns

Ruth Howard Fern House

With some 10,000 species occuring worldwide, ferns inhabit practically all-climatic extremes. However, the vast majority (about 85%) are limited to the tropical regions of the world.

In the Ornamental Fern Garden, visitors may view many examples of the variety within this plant family including variegated, climbing and epiphytic forms, all within a cool, moist, natural setting.
