Onoclea sensibilis, Sensitive Fern

 Pictures to come soon!



Sensitive Fern is a tough fern that is sensitive to frost and, if planted in full sun, to terribly hot days and drought conditions. It does best in moist environments under part sun to full shade. Like Ostrich Fern, it will spread via rhizome and where happy, can do so fairly quickly, making for a mat of its chartreuse, prehistoric-looking foliage. A great fern for the right spot!

Bloom: n/a

Height: 1 to 2 feet
