Boston Fern     

The original boston fern was purchased at a large grocery store in the early 1980’s. At one time I had it hanging from the ceiling in front of the window and it touched the ceiling and the floor. That was a few generations ago. I have it in a pot on a plant stand now and the top of the new fronds reach about 5 1/2 feet from the floor. Some fronds have reached the floor and grown out a few more inches. It sends out runners that just hang there and little fern plants form along them.

This planting is in the Container Flower & Foliage garden .
