Description

Bracken ferns (Pteridium aquilinum) belong to the large family of coarse ferns that grow in most world areas and most soils 

They are hardy plants that are easy to start and lend themselves very well to various settings.

  Bracken ferns grow in much of North America in zones 3-9. They grow best in acidic soil but can also survive in sterile and poor soil. They cannot, however, thrive in water-logged areas. They take very little water but will become dormant if long stretches are without rain. Bracken ferns will grow in full sun but will do much better in the shade or partial shade.

  Bracken ferns grow up to four feet tall on stiff stems from which triangular-shaped fronds grow from alternating branches. They quickly colonize from deep-rooted rhizomes or spores that drop from their delicate fronds.

  The lush green color of bracken ferns, which turns yellow in late summer and brown in winter, looks especially lovely in meadows and woodland gardens

A cluster of ferns is perfect for under trees where no other plants will grow, and grown on a slope can prevent soil erosion. They can also colonize a sunny, dry slope in no time. Bracken ferns make great companion plants for hostas, columbines, and caladiums but shouldn't be planted too close as their spreading habit could inhibit the other flowers. In rock gardens, bracken ferns can look spectacular paired with wild violets, sarsaparilla, or wild aster. 

  When starting bracken ferns, you should enrich the soil with organic matter. It would help to cut the rhizomes with a sharp knife to multiply them, never pulled apart. Growing them in a deep pot under the soil can prevent them from being invasive. Supplying water during periods without rain will keep the plants lush and green.
