About Forty Species Are Suited to Out­
door Culture.
Among the hardy ferns are varieties
treatly differing In slue and form, from
I halrllke creeping stem bearing a few
dmple moesllke leaves to the vIgor­
ina growing plants with large leaves,
ittaining a height of two or three feet.
?erns are interesting and extremely
teautiful, especially when grown as
«peelmen plants or In combination
vlth other plants. The varying condi-
ions in which the different species suc-
eed are remarkable. Many of them
equire a warm temperature, while
ithers do well in cool and shady places.
Of the 4,000 or more species of ferns
tot more than about forty species are
;ulted to outdoor culture iu ordinary
oils and situations. These species can
»e planted in beds, borders or rocker-
es or in the foreground of shrubbery.
Vs most of them require a somewhat
hady place, they are especially useful
