Thelypteris palustris

Marsh fern

A perfect solution to the shady wet sites, marsh fern's fronds arise from the ground individually instead of in clumps like most other ferns. Each individual frond orients itself towards the prevailing light, which produces a stunning visual effect when planted in masses.
