This native perennial fern consists of a clump of several compound leaves up to 6' tall. The petioles of these leaves are erect or ascending, while their branches are ascending to spreading. Both the petioles and branches of the leaves are hairless and variably colored light green, tan, brown, or reddish brown, depending on maturity and exposure to light. The structure of each compound leaf is bi-pinnate, consisting of 6 or more pairs of pinnate leaflets. Each pinnate leaflet usually consists of 10 or more sub-leaflets that are organized into two alternate ranks along the central stalk of the leaflet; however, small terminal leaflets may have fewer sub-leaflets. Full sun to light shade, wet to moist conditions, and a sandy acidic soil with organic matter are preferred. This fern also tolerates soil that is rocky (if not too alkaline) or silty. This fern also tolerates temporary flooding. The foliage may become pale yellowish green in full sun, particularly during hot dry weather, but seems to always manage to recover.
