Description

Spleenwort Fern - Asplenium.

The Spleenwort Fern is a leafy, green fern with a black or purplish colored stem. Native to the Rocky Mountains in the US and parts of South Africa, the Spleenwort Fern tends to grow along rocky slopes, wooded regions, and mossy banks. It blooms mostly in the springtime and can thrive in many different types of soil. It grows best in moist soil with partial sunlight. The Spleenwort Fern measures between six inches to a foot in height and width. The plant naturally reproduces by releasing spores into the wind at full maturity.

Spleenwort Fern has a unique sprawling shape and is an excellent garden plant.

Spleenwort fern looks like a smaller version of the favorite Christmas fern, even though the two are not close relatives. They have a lovely green color that they maintain all year round. These small ferns make excellent potted plants and grow well in terrariums. For outdoors, they can be used to line the garden or as a ground cover for a sunny spot. The fern loves to grow on wet rocks as well.

Spleenwort Fern is asymmetrical in shape. The stems are a bright reddish brown.

The fertile fronds of this type of fern grow straight up, while the non-fertile fronds grow in a horizontal direction. The spores are located on the back of the fronds. Spleenwort Fern is often called ebony spleenwort fern. This fern looks very similar to the Christmas fern. So if a Christmas fern is ideal for but too big, then a Spleenwort Fern would be best for you. It can also be called a mill waste because it was used in ancient medical needs to help cure milt or spleen. It can be used as a potted plant and also ground coverage. It is native the eastern coast of North America. To have these beautiful little plants will provide beautiful green accents to the garden. It is important to remember that these small ferns grow to be less than a foot tall so they will get lost in a busy garden with a lot of tall plants.
