Ferns in Southern California
I have a large sycamore tree which drops a lot of leaves and creates a lot of shade. Underneath it I have sweet woodruff (survives, but not not thrive), cyclamen (does well), camellias and azaleas (do well), and a gardenia (surprisingly well). I would like to grow some ferns. Does anyone have any recommendations for ferns that don't grow too large (say 2 feet high)? Is there a local source where I can find a large selection? Most of the nurseries I go to have a rather limited selection of (to me) boring ferns. I would love to go somewhere where ferns are a specialty. Any recommendations?
