Netted Chain Ferns

We have a lot of the Netted Chain Ferns growing around our property here on the mountain. They really grow well in moist to wet soil and stand about 1 to 2 feet tall.

The fronds are 5 to 8 inches wide and are deeply lobed sterile fronds. The y round veins above and below the leaf form a netted chain like pattern which is where the name comes from. The Netted Chain Fern colonizes by shallow slender rhizomes. And they can be transplanted easily. Be sure that you plant them in wet soil with very little to no sun as they love the shade and grow best in full shade, especially in South Carolina.
