New York Fern - Thelypteris Noveboracensis is a Native Woodland Perennial
Hardy Planting Zones: 3-10
Mature Height: 12”-24”
Mature Width: 18”-24”
Partial Shade to Full Shade
The New York fern is a native woodland perennial found along the eastern U.S. and Canada. It has bright green fronds and is an excellent addition to any woodland or natural wetlands garden. In the wild, New York fern is commonly found growing in the sunny patches caused by gaps in the woodland canopy. In the garden, they do well as a shade plant, thriving and filling out areas where other plants don’t do as well. Once established, New York ferns will help to support and attract toads to your garden.
New York ferns are easy to maintain and overgrow under the right conditions. They prefer acidic soil and shaded areas, and once established, don’t need to be watered often. They will do well in many types of land, however, and can grow up to 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide. The New York fern will sprout from June through September and can either be brought indoors during the winter months and kept in pots or left outdoors to overwinter. The top of the plants should be cut down in the late fall or early winter and will regrow again in the spring.
New York ferns are prolific growers and require very little maintenance once established, except for periodic pruning in areas where you don’t want them to grow. They are hardy enough to withstand droughts but will also grow exceptionally well with high levels of moisture, such as in marshy areas or near streams. Divide the New York fern roots whenever you wish to thin out new growth or propagate them to new areas of your garden.
Young New York ferns will grow in clumps of three or four fronds and will add one more layer each year when grown in prime conditions. The fronds are a yellow-green color and feature twice-divided leaves that give the New York fern its unique wispy appearance.
New York Fern grows best when planted in full sunlight and partial shade locations.
New York Fern
The New York fern is a delicate, deciduous, tapering fern that is yellow-green in hue and grows to be 1-2 feet tall. The fronds appear separately or in small clumps. The maximum width of the fronds at maturity is 4 inches, and they taper to the top and the bottom, setting them apart from other species of ferns.
The light, wispy foliage, and tiny lower leaflets give the fern an almost translucent appearance. When planted in a flower garden, New York ferns add interest and texture to the composition and accentuate the varied colors and shapes of neighboring plants.
The yellow-green springtime color gives way to olive green in summer months and often changes to purple in the autumn. When surrounding perennials lose their leaves, New York Ferns provide shelter for toads during winter weather.
New York ferns average 12 to 18 inches in height but may grow to be 2 feet tall with a 15-inch spread. A spacing of 12 inches is needed between ferns when planting. They grow at an average rate and have the potential of an 8-year lifespan under optimal conditions.
New York Ferns grow best in moist, mineral-rich soil, regardless of the pH. Their natural habitat is moist woods where light filters through openings in trees and other tall, sheltering plants.
The binomial name of New York Fern plants is Thelypteris noveboracensis, in the family called Thelypteridaceae, meaning Marsh Fern Family.
