New York Fern
New York Fern is classified as a smaller sized fern in the fern family. It has bright green fronds. The leaves or fronds grow tapering from the top towards the base and grow in a triangular shape. New York Fern is also known as Thelypteris Noveborancensis. Its Hardy planting zones are 3-10. It is native to the eastern part of the United States and Canada and often found in forests forming spreading colonies. The growth rate for these ferns is typically up to 12 inches per year.
They can grow up to 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide. They prefer to grow in partial shade to full shade. They can grow in many types of soil such as loamy, sandy, acidic or dry. This fern can be brought indoors in the winter months and kept in pots. It can also be cut down during the fall and winter and will re-grow in the spring. The fern itself grows in clumps of three or more fronds. It is dark brown in color and has slightly scaly rhizome. The stipe of this fern is brown at the base, but it will become green the closer it gets to the leaflets. On the bottom of the stipe, it will normally be covered in brown scales and then become finely hairy the farther up the fern it goes. The leaves are long and yellow green in color with a soft and thin texture to them.
This fern sprouts from June through September, and is native in the eastern and northeastern United States. It is a favorite of gardeners and hobbyists alike, requiring very little care except occasional pruning in places where rapid spreading is not desired. It prefers little to no direct sunlight, can survive decent droughts and thrives on moisture, and is hardy enough to withstand Zone 4 regions. Young plants usually begin with only three to four fronds, but adds another layer each year depending on growth conditions, emerging singly or in delicate clusters. Every fall the vibrant leaves slowly turn various shades of crisp gold, before fading away into winter.
