If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

Walking Fern is a rare low lying fern native to the Eastern United States and Canada
The name walking fern refers to its unusual growth pattern. The undersides of the leaves contain spores which create new plants wherever the leaves touch the ground, creating a ‘walking’ effect. It is an evergreen fern that grows about 6 inches tall with fronds up to 12 inches long. It builds on moss covered limestone rocks and had the unique ability to extend its roots into the tiny pockets in the rock and change the composition of the underlying soil. No other fern species creates a symbiotic relationship like this with its growing environment.
Walking Fern grows best in the shade
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Asplenium rhizophyllum
Height: six inches
Spread: eight to twenty-four inches
Soil Type: Mossy dolomite rocks
Sun: Partial shade to full shade
Walking Fern is beautiful and pairs well with hosta and ornamental grass in home landscapes
The fronds are leathery and lanceolate (spear-shaped). The base of the fronds is a reddish brown. The sori (spore producing bodies) on the underside of the fronds appear to be in a random pattern but follow the areolate (netted or chained like a fish net) vascular pattern. Walking ferns can be challenging to establish in a landscape setting, but once they are, they are very hardy ferns that will spread well on their own.
