This lush green fern thrives in moist, heavily shaded areas, although it can grow well in average soil as long as it does not dry out. The Sensitive Fern gets its name from the sensitivity of the green fronds to the first fall frost. A perfect fit for your shade garden and areas along streams and ponds.
