The sensitive fern has attractive foliage which, when it emerges in spring, is often attractively tinted pinkish-bronze. The leaves die off naturally in autumn, turning brown but retaining their shape. For this reason, do not cut them down until spring, as they provide a winter feature. Plants spread and form leafy ground cover about 45cm (18in) high, ideal in light dappled woodland, in large borders or in moist soil on the shady side of wild or water gardens. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
