I really like ferns, but aren't most of them unable to withstand heat? I'm looking for ones that come back in the spring...I do have shade...

Wow, Thanks so much! That was a quite an impressive list. Surely I will find ferns that will suit my purpses now. As usual the Garden Web offers the best advice to be found anywhere. I'm off to search for sources of these locally now. Thanks again.
