    Might be a Sensitive fern (Onoclea sensibilis). I love ferns. So pleasing to look at. I have never had any luck transplanting wild ones though.

    I was given some from the wild Lady Ferns a few weeks ago. I found that the very small ones up to 4" and the more mature ones over 14" do very poorly or die within days to a couple weeks. I have had the best luck with the 6" to 10" ferns. They do like composted soils that are moist and will thrive in partial shade with even about 6 hours of full afternoon sun on them.
