The most popular ferns for ground cover in south Florida landscaping are varieties of Nephrolepis. If you have a moist, shaded spot, try the native fern Acrostichum danaeaefolium, or Leather Fern, a large and dramatic in appearance inhabitant of freshwater swamps. Those who have a taste for swamp cabbage will likewise appreciate the tender new fiddleheads of their Leather Fern, chilled and splashed with balsamic vinaigrette!
