Sensitive Fern

Description

Onoclea sensibilis, the sensitive fern, is so named because the fronds turn an autumnal yellow and die down with the first frost and are hence sensitive (and not because it is in the least bit difficult to cultivate). It is a very willing east coast native. Growers in the challenging cold of Zone 2 climates (think Nova Scotia) can easily establish this species and have a low maintenance ground cover.

Produced seasonally.
