Hay Scented Fern Dennstaedtia punctilobula 

Hay Scented Fern: A TN Nursery customer favorite, Hay Scented Fern Dennstaedtia punctilobula, adds classic charm to any shade garden.

Gardeners cherish this otherworldly-looking plant for its ease of care and the great scent, which reminds one of the familiar, mildly grassy smell of freshly-harvested hay. 

This low-maintenance plant is a native species of the eastern United States. However, it performs well in all the temperate USDA growing zones.

They can thrive in many soil conditions, from dry, rocky woodlands to moist, dense hardwood forests. The main thing to consider is not soil quality but water. Like most ferns, the hay scented fern likes to stay consistently moist without becoming overly wet or over dry. 

Other than keeping an eye on the moisture content of your soil, the care requirements of this species are minimal. 

Hayscented fern( Dennstaedtia punctilobula) You'll Love the Dainty Appearance  

Dennstaedtia punctilobula might look dainty, but don't let that trick you. These diminutive ferns are sturdy despite their smaller size. 

The lovely golden-brown stems easily support the fresh, spring green fronds, which form a triangular shape. Each frond displays vibrant leaflets that are broad at the base and sharpen into a blunt tip at the end. The frond’s texture has an attractive, hair-like appearance.

The plant grows to a mature height of under two feet but will widen out as much as three to four feet; this growth pattern makes it an ideal ground cover or specimen plant for your shade garden.

How to Care for the Hay Scented Fern 

Like many ferns, the hay scented fern is native to North America, where it thrived for thousands of years without any human intervention. Fortunately, all you need to do is plant your Dennstaedtia punctilobula

 in a place with plenty of shade and well-amended soil. During the summer, watch for heat damage and provide water accordingly. Water it only when the ground gets exceptionally dry, or you see brown spots around the margins of the leaflets.
