Clover fern - hardy alternative to turfgrass






Texas Native Groundcovers/Ferns/Semi-aquatics

Texas has its own hardy native groundcovers and drought-tolerant ferns that can bring interest and beauty to your yard without the maintenance costs of standard turfgrass. Clover Fern is an ideal choice in areas of full sun up to 70% shade. It adapts readily to a wide variety of soil types, is deer and pest-free and provides good erosion control for difficult areas.
