5G Foxtail FernHearth & Home Distribution
The foxtail fern takes full sun to partial shade but grows more densely in full sun. This plant likes well-draining, amended soil for optimum growth. The foxtail fern has an extensive root system with large tubers that can store water and food during periods of drought. When handling the plant and working in the garden near the plant, wear gloves to protect your hands and arms from the poisonous sap.
