Description

Netted Chain Fern - Woodwardia Areolata

The Netted Chain Fern is a deciduous fern that grows in zones 3-9. It is fast growing and will reach its mature height of 18”-24” in the first year. It grows best acidic soils in either sun or shade. Landscapers use them in wetland borders or as a ground cover. If you look underneath the fronds, you will notice the veins are raised and form a net-like a pattern.

Netted Chain Ferns are very similar in care requirements and appearance to the more familiar Sensitive Fern.

The most significant 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 sterile 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 seem beautiful when applied to line garden or landscaping water elements. They are very fast growers and grow to maturity within the first year. 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 area and also adds life to old worn out buildings.

Netted Chain Ferns also work great to create a beautiful ground cover.

These ferns can even be grown in a large container and used on porches and patios. They can also help with soil erosion problems. A stunning green addition to many shades, native plant and woodland gardens is the netted chain fern. This plant grows up to 2 feet tall and can be up to 1.5 feet wide. While it prefers partial or full shade, it will tolerate the sun as long as its soil is kept consistently moist. This plant takes its name because the veins on the underneath side of the leaves that can be up to 10 inches long form a chain-like pattern ending in small rounded expanded areas not quite at each leaf's edge.
