Elegant Wart Fern - A Unique Addition to Your Garden

About the Bloom

The Wart Fern, also known as the Polypodium Formosanum, does not produce blooms. Instead, its charm lies in its distinctive warty texture on the fronds. These fronds are a vibrant shade of green, creating a visually interesting display that adds character to any garden space.

What to Know About the Plant

The Wart Fern is an evergreen fern that maintains its lush green color throughout the year. It is a compact plant, growing to a height of around 1-2 feet, making it an ideal choice for smaller garden spaces or as a decorative indoor plant. The fronds of the Wart Fern are narrow and elongated, with a unique wart-like texture that sets it apart from other fern varieties.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Introduce the unique texture and color of the Wart Fern into your fruitscape for a touch of exotic flair. Pair this ornamental fern with fruit trees like Fig or Pomegranate for a striking contrast in foliage. Mix in berry plants such as Blackberries or Strawberries to complement the green hues of the Wart Fern with pops of vibrant red. Tropical plants like Banana or Pineapple can enhance the tropical feel of the Wart Fern, creating a lush and vibrant garden oasis. Herbs like Mint or Basil can add a fragrant and culinary element to your garden design, combining beauty with functionality.

At Just Fruits and Exotics, we ensure that your Wart Fern is shipped 100% in pot, preserving its freshness and vitality. Our superior packaging and easy shipping make it convenient for you to bring this unique plant into your garden. As a nationally renowned, family-owned and operated online nursery, we provide a trusted and local-friendly shopping experience for all your plant needs. Elevate your garden with the Wart Fern and enjoy the beauty of this distinctive fern variety in your outdoor or indoor space.

Planting & Care
Landscaping with Ferns

Ferns are a very special plant with lots of understated beauty. These ferns can be so elegant without having to show off a colorful flower or bright fruit. Ferns just stay true to nature’s beauty by being simple and graceful. They unravel one leaf at a time to display the wonderful texture and patterns they have to offer. We love using ferns in planters to give it that contrasting texture and pattern. We also like to fill in shady garden beds with ferns to create a cool oasis.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your Ferns, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
