Sensitive fern

Price: €3.95
Current stock: 12

A spreading fern for damp soil or pond edges. It has vivid green fronds, with new fronds appearing throughout the summer: it pretty much disappears over the winter. It spreads by underground runners, and is vigorous if the soil conditions are correct (ie moist). The name comes from the fact that the fronds go yellow and die back at the first frost, but it is otherwise hardy & easy to grow. New fronds in spring have a red tinge. Height to 60cm. Sold in small 9cms pots.
