I heard that Ferns can be grown as water plant, I was wondering if anyone in zone 5 is/has tried?
I can't speak for the requirements of all fern species, but I grow Sensitive Fern in my bog. It's a fern that can grow in full sun if in a wet enough environment. It wouldn't do well in standing water but definitely likes a wet environment. You can see it here on the left of my Great Blue Lobelia. I certainly recommend it for all bog owners.I heard that Ferns can be grown as water plant, I was wondering if anyone in zone 5 is/has tried?
No, sensitive plant and sensitive fern are two very different things.I'm not sure what type of fern I have, it grows naturally in my wooded areas with Trillium and wild Geraniums.
Is the Sensitive Plant, the same as Sensitive Fern? I tried that in the pond one year
I'm really liking the Lobelia in the bog, does yours comeback the next year if you leave it in the water?
