Onoclea sensibilis (sensitive fern), a delightful North American plant. Grows in fairly dry shade or moist sunny conditions, but preferably by the waterside where its creeping rhizomes (which carry two kinds of fronds) can scramble in and out of the water. Its sterile fronds are dark and broadly segmented. The fertile fronds are 1-1/2 to 2 ft. high with the segments rolled up into bead-like bodies.
