Sensitive Fern

Sensitive Fern

Onoclea sensibilis  


Unlike its name suggests this Fern is a robust species naturally found in low, wet places. It prefers rich, organic soil, even tolerating somewhat acidic soil. The leaflets are bolder, wider and less sharply indented than most ferns. Spreads by rhizomes and will soon form a generous colony. Fruiting fronds provide winter interest.
