Chain Fern - Woodwardia Areolata
Netted Chain Fern, or Woodwardia areolata, is hard in zones 3 to 9 and grows between 1 1/2 and 2 feet tall. Each plant can spread from 1 to 1 1/2 feet in diameter and prefers full shade but can grow in partial shade also. The Netted Chain Fern grows best in organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained, acidic soils.
Netted Chain Ferns create a beautiful ground cover.
Often used in shade gardens, native plant gardens, naturalized areas, or woodland gardens. Although the Netted Chain Fern is not a flowering plant, fronds emerge a pinkish color in the spring which, uncoiled, can be from 1 to 2 feet in length. These early spring fronds mature to a glossy green color, and while the Netted Chain Fern will produce similar fronds through the summer, these later additions will be the same length but will emerge green.
This luscious green fern can be found growing wild in woodland swamps and bogs all along the east coast of the United States and as far north as southern Nova Scotia in Canada.
Named after the English botanist Thomas Jenkinson Woodward, Chain Fern is very popular.
If given the right growing conditions, the Netted Chain Fern can be encouraged to spread into large colonies. As with other ferns, this fern thrives in heavily shaded gardens as well as along streams or on the banks of a pond. The Netted Chain Fern is easy to maintain, does not suffer from common insect infestations or plant diseases, and is also rabbit resistant. Once planted, as long as the soil is kept moist, there is very little maintenance required.
This fern is similar to, and often confused with the more common, Onoclea Sensibilis, but will reach 2 feet at maturity rather than the 4-foot height of Oncclea Sensibilis (sensitive fern)
