Re: Autumn Fern Q

Urp. The thought of pink flowers next to the brassy foliage of Autumn Fern makes me gag.

Thanks for the info on Blue-eyed Mary.

I just need something that won't clash. The plant reminds me of an orangey-brick house on my way into town. The owner has a Redbud planted in front of it. I have to avoid that road for about 4 weeks in the spring.

Blue-eyed Mary = Scrophulariaceae, a winter annual, has blue and white
flowers.  I didn't know which season you wanted.  What about Dicentra
eximia (Fringed Bleeding Heart)?  Has a delicate leaf  and pale pinkish to
rose  lavender flowers, April to frost.  Does need some light shade.

Trout lilies bloom in early April here and are long gone, as is the
Bloodroot. It looks odd to me with Iris. Ladies Mantle lasts here until
mid-June, then goes belly up. I've got maybe 50 varieties of Hosta and it
doesn't look right with any of them that I've tried, except the
before-mentioned Robert Poore.
I think maybe I should give up on the Autumn Fern. Maybe it's the plant
itself I don't like, though I admire its toughness. I've got bunches of
other ferns (Southern Shield, Holly, East Indian Holly, Christmas, Ebony
Spleenwort, Netted Chain, etc.)

What's Blue-eyed Mary?
