Hay Scented FernDennstaedtia Punctilobula is Hardy Planting Zone 3-9

Hay Scented Fern, Dennstaedtia Punctilobula Grows well in Shade and Partial Sun

This fern has fronds that can grow to be 40-100 cm tall. It typically grows in woods or open woods that have either damp or dry acidic soils. Hardy planting zones are 3-9. The growth rate is up to 12 inches per year for the Hay-Scented Fern. Hay Scented Fern gets its name because when the fronds are broken, crushed, or damaged, they have a light smell of hay. They can grow up to 36 inches tall and up to 9 feet wide. This fern can grow well in the shade to partial sun. It is a fast grower and can become established quickly. They grow in areas that are hard to grow other plants. It can become a groundcover if left ungroomed.

It is mistaken a lot for other ferns, but once you smell it, you know the name. It will die in the cold winter and then grow back the following year. It has a golden yellow color in the fall. This fern would go great in an area where one needs or wants to cover a large area quickly and cheaply that is also attractive. However, due to its hardiness, it is not advised to plant this fern and weaker growing plants as it will take them over. Due to how quickly they can spread, it is recommended to plant them 18 inches apart. Although they plant in full sun, they will not have their lush look in a complete sun environment.
