The Many Attributes of Using Sensitive Ferns- Onoclea Sensibilis

The sensitive fern is an ornamental beauty that makes a first appearance in the form of new, pale red fiddleheads in early spring. Filling a comfortable position in hardy perennial plants, it returns every spring. Ultimately, it is one of the first season's colorful displays of new growth after the dormancy of winter.

Because it has a natural habit of carrying spores enclosed in bead-like coverings on separate stalks, it earns an additional title of the bead fern.

The established greenery is low maintenance, giving nature the luxury to assist this fern with the pleasure of developing colonies. The free-running and rambling habits are similar to the lady fern. Shallow rhizomes trail outward and allow new fronds to grow at intervals until the initial planting becomes a naturalized area. The flexible nature makes it a great candidate for meadow plantings, native gardens, and even roadsides and slopes where the roots help to lock in soil.

Prized as ground covers in wooded landscapes, it covers as much territory as you desire.

Shaded environments are the natural requirements for sensitive fern. 

Seasonal trimming and shaping give you the advantage of expressing your style. You are the designer of your royal domain.

Add some of these lush foliage plants in patio containers as conversation starters. How relaxing is natural foliage in entertainment and recreation situations?

Sensitive ferns have the potential to grow up to four feet tall

In zones 4 - 8. Use compost-enriched, loose soil and maintain hydration, which assists the plant to display new shows of greenery.

Plant wildflowers in your naturalized fern landscapes to invite native birds and butterflies. Additionally, get out your camera for some wildlife photography in your meadow garden. Because sensitive ferns are not on the menu for deer and rabbits, you can relax when they visit and take a healing, mindfulness pause in life. Who knew a fern garden could be a healing, meditative experience?
