Glade Fern - Deparia Acrostichoides
A Glade Fern is a perennial whose leaves grow in clusters that ascend in size, measuring about 1.5 inches at the stem's base and 3.5 inches at the tip. Unlike many ferns which grow on mossy rocks, it likes lush, silty soil in shaded spots.
The Glade Fern is most common as a naturally-occurring plant throughout Illinois, with the highest concentration found in the southern tip of the state. They need high-quality natural habitats to thrive, preferably in a low, rocky terrain with abundant amounts of sandstone or limestone. White-tail deer are known to nibble on this species, so cultivate this adaptable plant in your garden to attract local wildlife!
