Sensitive Fern For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices At Tennessee Wholesale 

Sensitive ferns aren't the kind that curls up when you touch them. Instead, these exuberant green fronds are susceptible to frost. Despite that sensitivity, the ferns are prolific throughout the lower-Midwest and the Northeastern United States where they are found growing throughout hardiness zones 4 through 8. They only suffer when frosts are early, but they manage to rebound if kept in optimum conditions. The ferns do best in consistently moist soils, to include clay soils. Though they prefer lighter soils, they can tolerate heavy clay and are adaptable to loam soils so long as the ground is kept moist. These bright green, upright ferns display triangular-shaped leaflets with serrated edges. They grow up to four feet high with a three- to four-foot spread.
