    This fern came well packaged, fast shipping and it only took about 3 weeks once it was placed in the ground before we started seeing rapid growth! Cant wait to order from them again

Description

Walking Fern - Asplenium rhizophyllum

Walking fern, also known as Asplenium rhizophyllum, is a perennial fern that grows best in humid conditions with light to vibrant shade. The walking fern also prefers a rocky and thin soil. The walking fern must be planted in a location with the shelter that protects from wind. The walking fern grows naturally on cliffs, particularly in crevices or ledges with shade. The walking fern also grows naturally on mossy rocks, overhanging rocks near streams, fallen tree trunks, limestone ravines, and sandstone ravines. The walking fern is easily identifiable because it does not look at any other type of greenery. A walking fern is a small group of low leaves that are simple in appearance. The fronds of the walking fern are smooth and dark to medium green in appearance. The leaves of the walking fern are narrow, long, undivided, and may curve back and root into the ground. The walking fern grows naturally in tufts and is usually surrounded by child plants. The younger walking fern plants are seen lying flat and older walking fern plants are arching in appearance. The lower part of the walking fern leaf is light green. At the base of the plant, the leaves are brown. The walking fern's infertile and fertile leaves look similar, but lush leaves are typically longer than barren leaves. The walking fern can reproduce through vegetation. The tips of leaves of the walking fern can root into the ground, which then produces a new group of leaves that surround the mothering plant. This allows the walking fern to grown in colonies and often are seen in groups in nature. The walking fern is native to both North America and East Asia. The walking fern is native to the Ozarks and Appalachian Mountains.

Walking Fern is terrific and is unique as it grows. 

 

Walking Ferns provide a lot of colors as they grow and mature.
