Virginia Chain Fern

Woodwardia virginica

Virginia Chain Fern

Woodwardia virginica, the Virginia chain fern, is a spreading native that thrives in moisture and even in mud should you have any! Given adequate wet, this deciduous species can thrive and creep about in sunny exposures as well as the traditional shaded location. New fronds brighten the spring garden with golden tones later becoming a rich green tapestry of 1 to 2 feet in height. It is quite handsome when mingled with sarracenias and other ornamental bog lovers. Plant it in a consistently moist site and then watch it romp in Zones 3
