Plant Bio

Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Bostoniensis’

Said to have been discovered as a sport in 1894, Boston Fern is popular today as a deck/patio plant and as a houseplant. It’s frequently grown in hanging baskets where it can be hung on shaded front porches. The plant’s finely textured arching fronds have a graceful look that naturally fits in with a range of architectural and décor styles. Like most ferns, keep it from drying out, especially in hot, windy weather or low-humidity conditions indoors. While Boston Fern is a specific variety, the species Nephrolepis exaltata is native to subtropical areas of North, Central, and South America, including Florida.
