Onoclea sensibilis (Sensitive Fern)

Sensitive Fern has distinctive, coarsely lobed leaves of a slightly chartreuse color. A good native fern for clay soils, it grows best in partial or full shade, in moist settings. It also does very well in average garden soils, as long as there is consistent moisture and the soil is not allowed to dry out. In optimal conditions Sensitive Fern spreads quickly by rhizomes, making it an excellent ground cover plant for low moist areas. The name, Sensitive Fern, refers to the tendency of the leaves to die-back with the first frost. Rabbit and deer resistant.

To protect the crowns and tender shoots in the spring, it is best to leave the old fronds on the plant over the winter. They can be removed in the spring when the new fronds reach 6 inches tall. If division is necessary, do so in the spring. Leaves may be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring. Plants are easily divided in spring, every 3 to 4 years.

Pairs well with Heuchera, Liriope, Galium, Hosta, other types of Ferns.
