CYSTOPTERIS BULBIFERA - BLADDER FERN

Bladder Fern
The Bladder Fern grows in alkaline rocks and dense woods from Canada to Alabama in the U.S. This fern has monomorphic leaves, brown scales, and unicellular gland tipped hairs that cover the rachis. It can grow up to 1 to 3 feet tall and blooms from June to September. The fronds of the fern taper to a point and bulblets form on the underside of the fronds, which begin as microscopic dots and grow up to 1/2 inch eventually. At the same time those bulblets are growing fronds of their own. The Bladder Fern is a very fast growing plant. Bladder Fern primarily found growing in North America with a few patches in western states. It only grows in calcareous substrates like limestone. It is a temperate zone fern that grows well in USDA Climate zones three through seven. Like most ferns, this one grows well in damp conditions but can handle dry conditions. This fern will even grow on mortar joints on a wall or calcium rocks. This fern prefers partial to full shade. They have a mature size of two feet to three feet in width and one foot to three feet in height.  It has a low creeping growth habit.
