Glade Fern

This looks amazing around my water garden.

Silvery Glade Fern is a Hardy Perennial Fern

Silvery Glade Fern meets all the expectations commonly associated with a fern's foliage. It is airy and symmetrical, elegant, and deep-toned. The fern is reminiscent of the Victorian era yet has enough pop to make it a contemporary garden specimen. The plant prefers shade and moisture but is highly adaptable to temperatures. You can find it growing in hardiness zones 3 through 7. Native to the Midwestern and Northeastern United States, the silvery glade fern is tolerant of cold conditions despite its exotic appearance.

Silvery Glade Fern is a Perfect Landscape Plant for Foundations and Shade Gardens

The plant's fronds boast lengths of up to 3 feet and diameters of up to 1 foot. Each elaborate leaflet reaches 6 inches, with 22 leaflets per frond rough. Each leaf is uniform, resulting in a highly accurate display.

The silvery description might seem incorrect since the plant is olive green in color, but during the hotter months, the undersides of the plant take on a silver sheen. Bright glad ferns reach up to 3 feet with an equal-sized spread. Though you can place it in pots and urns, it is often planted directly in the soil. It prefers light soils amended with slightly decaying organic matter for moisture and fertility.

This fern is a prolific understory planting with enough textural display to make it exciting and modest to keep it from overshadowing bright annuals or upright and highly ornamental plants. Its preference for shade and moisture makes it the perfect landscape plant for foundations and shade gardens. Areas under dense trees are often difficult to plant, but silvery glade fern will happily take root.
