Collection Name: NCBG - Fern Collection
Collection Description: While there are many opportunities to enjoy native southeastern ferns at the North Carolina Botanical Garden, the fern collection in front of the Paul Green cabin provides a different experience. Here, ferns are arranged so that visitors may see and compare specimens of related Southeastern species in the near beds and appreciate the intricate patterns and textures of masses of ferns in the surrounding area. An example is the juxtaposition of northern maidenhair fern, a not uncommon plant that grows in the mountains of North Carolina, with southern maidenhair, a rare fern found closer to our coast.
