Welcome to Fancy Fronds Nursery. We are a small family run mail order nursery in Gold Bar, Washington that specializes in growing temperate ferns.  In addition to our mail-order offerings, our nursery is open to the public by appointment.  We offer a wide selection of temperate ferns in the U.S., with over 100 species cultivars in our commercial collection including temperate ferns, Victorian cultivars, desert ferns, alpine ferns and spike-moss.  We carefully pack and ship our ferns in the spring and fall to ensure they arrive safely and in good condition; we have just started our spring shipping season.  Shipping may be subject to seasonal conditions, so please take a moment to read our Shipping policies in the "FAQ" section of our website if you have any questions about shipping times or rates.  Due to the base cost of shipping, we do recommend (but do not require) a $20 minimum order to maximize the number of ferns you will receive compared to the shipping cost.  We are also more than happy to help you select ferns perfect for your USDA zone that will thrive in your garden.  

Looking for something specific?  Search for ferns by common name, latin name, USDA zone, or keyword (zone 7, evergreen, deciduous, ostrich fern, athyrium, etc.) or just browse our "Shop for Ferns" page below

Whether you are looking for a splash of color, texture, or just love gardening, we have the ferns for you!  Our plants are thoroughly established, correctly identified, and are grown in minimally heated greenhouses, making for specimens that are ready to thrive in your garden.  Live ferns are shipped during the spring  and fall to protect them from extreme heat and cold.
