Stacey what about Japanese painted fern?.athyrium niponicum? Ursulas red is one I grow and it's a beauty. ,silver blue leaves with red veins and reddish stems. ,needs shelter from strong sun, good soil, good moisture. Mine grows to about 2' high and more across. I had to move it a few times to give it perfect spot. Ok, not truly evergreen but near enough for me. Check it out. There are some other similar varieties.
Dryopteris The King is evergreen for me and is lush but 4' tall plus for me. But it's such an easy fern growing anywhere I think.
You have me wanting to get another fern now.
Ok chicky. Have arranged good weather for your date. Jack Frost may invite himself though
