GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: LORIN
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Lorinseria
GENUS AUTHORITY:
GENUS COMMON: Netted Chain Fern
GENUS SUMMARY: A monotypic genus, perennial herb, of e. North America. Lorinseria has often been lumped into the Eurasian (mainly e. Asian) Woodwardia, but is basal to Anchistea + Woodwardia, morphologically distinctive from both, and an ancient independent lineage.
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: In sterile leaf, Lorinseria areolata is sometimes confused with Onoclea sensibilis, but Lorinseria has the pinnae generally alternate (vs. tending to be opposite), the pinnae generally acute or acuminate (vs. obtuse), and the pinna margin finely serrulate (vs. entire).

HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Netted Chain Fern produces upright reddish-green fronds in early spring that become glossy dark green as they mature. This species is found in swamps or very wet conditions, such as the edges of ponds, throughout eastern North America. However, it is adaptable and easy to grow, thriving in normal shade garden situations. Some Native American tribes used ferns of the Woodwardia genus for making baskets and dyes.
