Ground covers actually make gardening easier. What a concept.

Points out that American Maidenhair Fern is "one of the most beautiful of our native ferns", and thrives in rich, moist, humusy soil, in a shady location. Charming with trilliums or other spring wild flowers, at the base of a large rock. [152 paraphrasing]. Pictured, and mislabeled, is a marvelous display of Western Sword Fern.

Describes Sweet Woodruff" as "...a neat little perennial with its leaves arranged in whorls on squarish stems...carries its tiny four-pointed stars at the tips of the whorls and blooms for many weeks in early spring." The foliage when crushed and cut has the fragrance of new-mown hay and vanilla, and it is used in wine drinks in Germany. May wine. [128] ( )
