Teardown Fern is Bush-like in 2019
This big happy fern is loving things back in the deep shade of our far back yard. It is now almost in bush form and has doubled year-over-year from what it looked like last year. I yanked it out of Nat's Sister's lot before she built her new house in Downers last Summer. It was the middle of the Summer, so there was certainly some transplant stress. I haven't done much to tend to this fern aside from a couple of what I'll call 'strategic' waterings. Those were deep waterings of areas during the deep heat of July/August when I started to see things droop and wilt.
This is located behind the yew hedge that I planted earlier this Summer and will (eventually) be in the shadow of some Canadian Hemlock trees that I planted - if they grow!
