Click on the Common Name to view a picture of that fern. The first list contains only a few of the many native Georgia ferns many of which you can see at the Georgia Perimeter College Botanical Garden. George Sanko now has a new section of the garden called "Ferns of The World" which also include cultivars that are not native to the Southeastern area, but they will survive in the Atlanta area. The "Link" designation indicates there is a link to more details on the fern. We also now have three xeric fern gardens as we have added two more. These gardens feature both native and non-native to Georgia ferns. Many of the non-natives are from the Southwest. In fact, one of the gardens feature only ferns which grow in the Southwest. Imagine ferns which grow in almost desert like conditions and we can grow them in Atlanta.
