Netted Chain Ferns - Woodwardia areolata
Netted Chain Ferns are very similar in care requirements and appearance to the more common Sensitive Fern. The biggest difference between the two is that the fertile fronds of this fern feature incredibly narrow leaves, which provide a sharp contrast to the blade-like, broad leaves of the infertile fronds. The Netted Chain Fern is a native to North America's west coast. They look best when used to obscure a garden fence, planted along a building, or when used as a luxurious, lush ground cover. They also look beautiful when used to line garden or landscaping water elements. These fantastic ferns can grow to be two to three feet high and also two to three feet wide. They are very fast growers and grow to maturity within the first year. They are wonderful when planted in climate zones four through nine and also is called Woodwardia Areolata. They are very healthy if planted in full sun and partially shaded areas and can be found seen in the wooded areas and also along the edges of forests. They thrive in all types of soil conditions as most ferns prefer moist and well drained. They add a very vibrant color and look to areas such as gardens and also when planted around a fenced in area and also adds life to old worn out buildings. They also work great to create a beautiful ground cover. These ferns can also be grown in a large container and used on porches and patios. They can also help with soil erosion problems.
