Onoclea Sensibilis
Sensitive Fern

Height: Short

A lovely fern with pretty arching foliage of finely divided triangular fronds. Maturing to pale green from pinkish-bronze in spring. Does best in a sheltered moist border or a shaded patio container; keep moist at all times. This plants prefers light dappled shade; the fronds will scorch if exposed to too much sun.

This plant is also suitable for the Pondside/Bog garden. Place around the edge of a pond, providing soil is damp and not waterlogged. Alternatively plant in damp areas of the garden.
