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. (Source: Prairie Nursery, Inc.)
