Clover Fern is a perennial fern that is used as a ground cover that creates a dense mat and is not particular about sun exposure. The sunnier the exposure, however, the more water it will need. It prefers consistently moist sites but will adapt to dryer sites, especially in shade or part shade. Clover Fern is great for rain gardens, poor draining spots as well as ditches, the edge of ponds and streams, and wetland gardens.

Since Clover Fern spreads rapidly and creates dense growth, it can be thinned out and cut back whenever needed. It will re-grow quickly.
