Silvery Glade Fern- Departa Acrostichiodes

Glade fern, also known as diplazium pycnocarpon, is a narrow-leaved fern that grows in zones three to eight. The glade fern's genus name is derived from the Greek word diplasios, which means double. Glade ferns are also known as narrow-leaved spleen-wort, silvery spleen-wort, and athryium pycnocarpon. Glade ferns are tall and grow slender leaves, with five to six leaves. Fronds of the glade fern grow to approximately 90 centimeters long and 15 centimeters in width. The pinnae of the glade fern are entire and linear. 

The Silvery Glade Fern thrives in predominantly shady, moist, environments.

 The fertile leaves of the glade fern are erect and narrow with long stipes. Sterile leaves of the glade fern appear taller and thinner than lush leaves, with pinnae that are narrow compared to the fertile fronds. Fertile leaves of the glade fern have pairs of pinnae that grow in an alternate arrangement and typically include 20 to 40 pairs per plant. The lush leaves of the glade fern generally appear in late summer, while sterile fronds of the glade fern appear in spring.

Silvery Glade Fern establishes widespread colonies, preferring riverbeds, moist woodlands, and shaded areas. 

The glade fern is native to North America and grows in height from two to three feet. The glade fern is native to Minnesota through southern Louisiana and Georgia. Glade ferns typically grow naturally in valleys, streams, woodlands, and ravines. Glade ferns grow from two to three feet wide in the spread. The glade fern is seen growing widespread from the Gulf of Mexico to Ontario The glade fern can spread through underground stems that creep and allow a colony to develop throughout its lifetime.

Glade fern requires full to partial shade. Glade fern requires a medium level of water and is a low maintenance plant. The glade fern is typically planted as ground covering and can tolerate environments that include dry soil, ample shade, and rabbits.
