Ferntopia could be the name for this plan featuring a variety of sword, deer and maidenhair ferns. They can be arranged formally or in a natural clustered way. Inside out flower is present near the lawn when its small white blooms and duck feet foliage can be appreciated. Oceanspray, red flowering currant and Pacific dogwood will show off their blooms against the evergreen backdrop of the grand fir and western redcedar.
