Plants By Type
Marsh Ferns - Thelypteris
Marsh Ferns are another small-to-medium sized fern of particular beauty. Their color is typically a rich yellow-green, and many fronds of this fern exhibit a unique characteristic: the leaves are slightly rolled, giving the fern a soft, billowy look rather than the more common lacy texture. And unlike many other ferns, the Marsh Fern is considerably more tolerant to direct sunlight, even preferring it over the full shade. The Marsh Fern is also hardy against pests and diseases and can be a great selection for areas where both typically present gardeners a problem. These ferns grow to become very healthy and sturdy ferns. They can reach to be up to two feet tall and also can grow to become around two feet wide. They also grow to full height within the first year of being planted. They look amazing as they provide gorgeous green color to all gardens where they are planted. They thrive when added to areas that offer full sunlight and partial shade. This fern also is wonderful because it can be grown very easily as it can adapt well to all various types of soil conditions. These ferns can be found growing wild in wooded areas where it comes in rather handy. It provides a great source of protection for small wildlife that can seek shelter under the long and dense growing fronds that it provides. This fern does best when planted in climate zones five through eight and is also called Thelypteris Palustris by the scientific name for this particular fern.
