Our hay scented ferns (dennstaedtia punctilobula) have a lovely fragrance like hay when the plant is brushed. These plants are native to the midwestern and eastern United States in wooded areas and along banks of rivers. The fronds are lacy in design and stand erect when fully grown, turning more yellow in the autumn. The fronds reach approximately 30” in length, and plants spread approximately two to three feet.

How To Grow Hay Scented Ferns

The ferns can be grown in a variety of soil types, including areas with poor soil and rocks. Established plants can be sown in dryer soil. Our ferns are ideal for areas with partial or full shade and can tolerate full sun. The plants are easy to maintain, requiring only moderate maintenance and watering, and are resistant to rabbits.

Hay Scented Ferns Maintenance

Individual ferns spread quickly to form colonies that fill in surrounding areas, producing a lush appearance to any garden. The rhizomes may disrupt develop of neighboring plants, so these ferns should be planted in isolated areas with plenty of room for growth and spread. The ferns do not flower. Leaves are very fragrant and have good fall, so some cleanup may be required in areas where the plants are grown. Insects and diseases are not common with the ferns. The plants may decline in performance in warmer climates during the last few weeks of the summer.

Utilizing Hay Scented Ferns

Hay scented ferns are great additions to areas with trees and add charm to wild growing gardens and cottage landscaping. They can also be used in wooded areas to fill in areas for a more natural look.

Hay Scented Fern

Came as a bag of loose rhizomes. They all seemed healthy and had a snap to them. I got a lot more than the 25 I ordered. I don't know if this was a mistake, or they are just very generous with this variety.
