Ferns are a superb choice for shade and partial shade gardens. Crested Surf Fern resembles Japanese Painted Ferns but with double-crested frond tips. Ferns are grown for their intricately textured foliage. This medium height, dark green perennial fern is hardy in zones 3 through 8. It will grow to between 20 and 22 inches tall with a 28- to 30-inch spread with an upright habit.

Crested Surf Fern is rabbit resistant and has average watering requirements It will have the best coloration when grown in light to partial shade conditions. Add this fern to mass plantings and border, perennial, or mixed gardens. It can also be used in the thriller role in container gardens. The fronds look great in floral arrangements.

Crested Surf Fern Care

This easy to grow plant can be grown at any soil fertility level from poor to great. The soil Ph level can be either acidic or neutral. The soil does need to remain moist and not dry out, but should be able to drain. Pick a location that is somewhat protected from strong winds.

Don’t cut back old fronds in the fall. Cut them back when new spring fronds are 6 inches tall. No need to fertilize, but you can add compost and other organic matter to the soil to help the plants grow. We also recommend applying a layer of mulch around the plants to help protect the roots and help keep the soil moist.

Crested Surf Fern Spacing

Space individual fern plants 28 to 30 inches apart. They will fill in to create a lovely garden setting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
