Glade Fern

 The Glade fern, Diplazium pycnocarpon, grows well in wetland areas and climates that are damp and cool. It does need many amounts of shade. They are drought tolerant and do require moist, wet soils. It can reach up to 5 feet tall when fully grown and 4 to six feet wide. Glade fern has a silvery color and makes it stand out very well, a lot more than other ferns or plants that are planted in beds or natural areas. Make great boarders around ponds, paths, houses, sidewalks, and flower beds.

Glade fern has a dramatic impact in the areas it is grown when it grows around more colorful and bright-hued plants or flowers. Glade Ferns will stay green all year long, even in the winter months and scorching summers. Again this fern is tolerant to drought but does need much moisture. Being it is a North American with narrow fronds on yellowish leafstalks and is very rare. Also, like other different types of ferns, it is a flowerless and seedless vascular plant, meaning it has real roots from a rhizome, and it is frond uncurl upwards and reproduces by spores.

Glade fern is a moisture-loving perennial that grows approximately 3-4' tall.

It has smooth, pale green leaves that are a deep purple color at their base. Choose a shady location for planting. Select an area with fertile soil or amend by adding peat humus or compost. Loosen the soil well and plant at a depth of 1/2". Water until the soil is moist, but not wet. Add a thin layer of mulch around the base of each fern to maintain moisture and deter weeds. Allow a space of 14 to 18" between each planting.

 Climate Zone: 1 to 9

Mature Height: 3 to 4 feet

Sunlight: full to partial shade

Soil Condition: adaptable to various types
