Beaded Wood Fern or Champions Wood Fern...

I'm needing evergreen, arching, hardy ferns that can be used in galvanized washtubs in bright shade in Oklahoma. Am considering Beaded Wood or Champions Wood ferns, as well as Leatherwood. Any suggestions, comments or photos would be greatly appreciated. I LOVE ferns, but want to get the right ones. I've already purchased some Autumn ferns and Tassel ferns for the same general area, but not in containers.

Never mind...I've just ordered all of those I'm considering, plus a few others! It's HOT here, and the thought of more ferns in our yard makes me feel abit cooler! I'll find places for them, that's for sure. I LOVE ferns! I had trouble with the Forest Farm website, so went with Big Dipper for my order. Can't wait to get them!

Just wanted to report that my ferns from Big Dipper Farm arrived in great shape this morning. I got Champion's, Ostrich, Beaded Wood Fern, Leatherwood and Christmas ferns. The company gets a definite "A" rating from me. Good correspondence, wonderfully packaged, fast shipping, and the ferns look terrific...very healthy, even though shipped in HOT weather.
