Ferns, in general, are not the most useful of plants from a purely human
point of view. There are, however, several species that can be eaten (though
always cooked since the raw plant can often contain an enzyme that robs the
body of B vitamins) and several that are very useful medicinally.
Attached is a list of some of the more useful ferns for the temperate zone,
many of them are considered to be ornamental garden plants, though it is for
you to judge this since beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
