Onoclea sensibilis Copper form
An unusual copper-red tinted form. An easy, hardy and very distinct looking fern from N America, the pinnatifid fronds with broad flattened frilly edged segments. Spreads to form patches in moistish ground. In this rare form the fronds emerge red tinted and turn bright-green later, retaining colour in the stalk. Easily kept under control in small gardens as the rhizomes are not deep.
