There have been a few ferns that have stuck out at Harlow Carr recently amidst all the snow and freezing temperatures we have had. And even one that gives a more exotic feel in cold days, that being the Blechnum chilense! Also Woodwardia fimbriata has remained a great wintergreen addition in areas without much above ground. These have both been great tough and beautiful ferns so far along the streamside this winter!
The Tree ferns at Harlow Carr are all wrapped up for winter, but I couldn’t help appreciate them with the snow on them! We always look forward to seeing their new fronds emerge in summer and this year after this winter cold it will be even more exciting!
