Description

Hay Scented Fern - Dennstaedtia punctilobula

 Hay Scented Fern is a rarity among more massive ferns since it still has a thin or delicate look. These ferns are notorious for fast growth and will establish themselves in unwanted areas quickly. Since they are fast growing, it makes them fabulous for use as a ground cover. They excel at erosion prevention in high-risk areas and soils. They are often mistaken for more common New York Ferns and are deciduous, meaning they are dormant overwinters, and a beautiful golden-orange in the fall. This plant is a North American native.  These ferns are fantastic although they do go dormant into the winter months during the spring they grow and look amazing.   These can also be seen growing a lot in wooded and forests areas in North America as the conditions are just right for them. 

Hay Scented Ferns are very easy to grow and care for and are great for all homeowners and gardeners.

are very popular because of the height and width that they grow to be and are beautiful as they display their lovely green color and expand to provide a wonderful look and feel to areas.  They can become the main point of any garden they are placed in, and when the fronds are broken or crushed, they provide a fragrance that smells a lot like a lawn that has just been mowed.  Dennstaedtia Punctilobula, also known by the names eastern hay-scented fern or hay-scented fern, is native to a broad region of North America; most abundant in the east of Appalachian Mountains, up to one thousand two hundred miles above sea level.

Hay Scented Fern is deciduous, with yellow-green tapering fronds, growing between fifteen to forty inches (forty to one hundred centimeters) tall, and three to eleven inches (ten to thirty centimeters) broad. It inhabits damp or dry ascetic soil in wooded areas. The hay-scented fern shares a balanced relationship with another species, Rubus Allegheniensis, or blackberry bush. When the blackberries are reduced by deer, the hay-scented fern, which does not attract deer, takes over the area, restricting the growth of saplings that would inhibit the blackberries’ growth.

Hay Scented Ferns are great to bring lots of color to gardens and also work great as a beautiful and natural looking ground cover.
