The Glade fern
lovely, delicate plants that are excellent for shady areas in woodland gardens. Also known as silvery spleenwort, these fine-textured plants thrive in rich, damp soil, and look beautiful around the base of spreading trees. Young fronds are a summery yellow-green color, which brightens shady areas that are often hard to plant. Mature fronds are lovely dark green but lighten to straw color in fall. The fern takes on a silvery sheen when the nearly white indusia, which are protective outer membranes for spores, appear under the leaves in a lovely stripe pattern. The fern also reproduces by rhizomes and will form a dense groundcover over time. This hardy fern is native to the eastern U.S. and can survive colder temperatures. Ferns are ancient plants, which date back to long before the time of the dinosaurs. These ferns look amazing grouped together or as accent plants. They also look lovely alone, as their unique texture and appearance are sure to capture the eye no matter what. Silvery glade ferns will grace any waterside planting or shady sitting area. Their ethereal presence adds a soft backdrop to flowering plants and blends perfectly with tree roots and mosses.
