Onoclea sensibilis (Sensitive Fern)
Spring ordering is closed for Bare Roots, now taking pre-orders for September/October delivery.
A great woodland garden fern with excellent leaf texture! Can be somewhat aggressive in optimum conditions. Commonly called sensitive fern because the green vegetative fronds are sensitive to and suffer almost immediate damage from the first fall frost.
