Description

Walking Fern does not look like a typical fern frond

Walking fern is so named due to how it grows new plants. The leaves can grow from two to twelve inches long and taper to the point that they curl. The fronds are somewhat heart-shaped at the base and taper to a slender end that contains a bud. Structures that produce dark brown spores on the underside of the leaf cause new plants to sprout when the end touches the ground. That is what creates the “walking effect.” The spores may appear scattered on the bottom of the leaves, but they are along the veins. 

 

 The leaves are smooth and green except at the base, which is dark reddish-brown and scaly. They do not look like a typical fern frond. They grow in clumps because of the walking effect, and they do not produce flowers. Walking fern can tolerate wet soil on an occasional basis. They prefer shady and humid areas where they are protected from the wind. They are pretty hardy; They can tolerate a wide variety of soil types. They grow well in the eastern part of the US and as far west as Oklahoma and Kansas. It is not unusual for ferns to be hidden under the snow in the winter, waiting for the melt in the spring. 

 Walking Fern leaves are evergreen

 Walking fern is a beautiful plant for wooded rock gardens. They prefer to be near streams and grow on moss-covered rocks and overhangs. They will also grow on sandstone and sometimes on tree trunks. They are often planted for ground cover, and because the leaves are evergreen, you can enjoy them all year. Fern enthusiasts will find the walking fern is a beautiful addition to a natural garden with plenty of moss and preferably a tree large enough for shade and protection from the wind.
