The glade fern is a fern with narrow leaves and is also known as the Silvery Glade Fern.
The plant grows in hardiness zones 3 to 9. The genus name for the Glade Fern comes from the Greek term meaning double.
Glade ferns are tall and produce slender leaves, with about six leaves. The fern's fronds grow to around 90 centimeters long and 15 centimeters wide.
Glade ferns require partial to full shade. When the leaves are fertile, they are erect and produce long, narrow stripes. The plant's sterile leaves are thinner and taller than the greener ones and have pinnae that are noticeably skinny compared to the fertile fronds. The plant's abundant leaves usually bloom late in the summer season, and sterile fronds appear during spring. They require little maintenance and medium levels of water. Glade ferns tolerate dry soil well. These ferns also grow well in areas where there are rabbits since the animals won't eat them.
These ferns are native to North America and grow to be about 2-3 feet. The plant flourishes in Minnesota and throughout the southern regions of Georgia and Louisiana, and regions of Canada. Glade ferns usually grow wild in ravines, valleys, woodlands, and streams. The plant spreads from underground stems so a colony can develop during the fern's lifetime.
In the right conditions, Glade Ferns proliferate. Fronds can be about 30 inches long, and the plant's fertile fronds maintain a tall and robust posture. The plants stand straight up and have a slender appearance, making the ferns suitable for natural front or backyard decor. Glade Ferns also make wonderful potted plants as long as the soil in the pot is slightly dry and there's a place in your home to provide the proper shade requirements.
