I thought I lost this but it has come to life.
I tried to grow these years ago but think I had a bad location. Early Spring I put a small start of one in the dappled shade where I have my helleborous & some hosta! I spotted it this week!
What can I do to make sure I don't lose it this time?

Beautiful flowers, Muddy. Not sure what to do to keep the fern...maybe a good layer of leaves in the fall & winter?

I've read that cinnamon fern's fall die back should be cut down to ground level & covered with mulch for the winter. Do not have personal experience myself though.

Oh, Muddy, what lovely flowers. I LOVE that mandevilla. I don't think I've ever seen the striped one.

I planted two red ones this year at home. We'll see if they survived.

Love the striped mandavilla.....a new one for me too. How on earth are you still getting lily blooms?

Sorry, no experience with cinnamon ferns.

Hi Ve~~ I have been looking for some late season bloomers & this one is pretty late! Its my very last one! I have got some nice plants from a local place (& its online too) Daylilies & More. They have the huge fields & you can see what is blooming late.

OMGosh that sedum is gorgeous! Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing!

Don't know about the fern - I only have Autumn ferns which get cut back every spring if they have winter damage.
