I have a problem. Don't I always.
I got a Japanese Painted Fern that was on my want list. I thought it died over the summer but it didn't Yea! What it did do was go dormant. Now I need something that will take center stage while it is dormant over the summer.
The planting is rigt next to a garden bench in the shade of some mature trees that loose their leaves in the fall. The zone
is 7b. The temperatures are easily in the 90's and the conditions are drought during the summer. Can anyone suggest what I should plant here to take over when the fern is dormant that will share space with the fern without hurting it?
Thanks for all your help.
