    Glade Ferns

    Posted by Carl on 17th Sep 2020

    Ordered 10 Glade Ferns. They arrived promptly, in good condition, in two packages of 5 each. Each plant was separate from the others, rather than bunched together, which made it easy to divide them and put them in the ground. Now we'll see if they make it through the winter and come up in the spring.

    Good service, quick delivery, healthy-looking plants. Five stars.

Description

Silvery Glade Fern- Departa Acrostichiodes is a Narrow Leaved Fern

Silvery 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. 

 Silvery Glade Fern Requires Full to Partial Shade

 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.

 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.

Glade Fern 

The Diplaxium pynocarpon, more frequently referenced as the Glade Fern or Narrow-Leaved Spleenwort. A fern plant belonging to the Athyriaceae family with a large population currently growing throughout the United States and Canada. Found as far north as Quebec and as far south as Georgia, the fern can grow well in several different habitats. 

  Wooded forests and the bottoms of ravines in states like Louisiana are home to actively growing populations of the Glade Fern. The fern also grows in the colder climates of Minnesota and similar Northern states. 

  The optimal growing conditions of the Glade Fern found in the United States Department of Agriculture Growing Zones 3 – 8. The fern reaches a maximum height of roughly 36 inches tall with a maximal spread width of between 2 feet and 3 feet wide. Nutrient-dense soil with consistent drainage in the environment is best for growing the Glade Fern, as the fern tends to spread by creeping rhizomes. 

  Under the proper conditions, the Glade Fern will grow rapidly. Fronds reach up to 30 inches in length, and the plant's fertile fronds typically maintain a stable posture, standing straight up and with a tall and slender body.
