Product Description

Hay Scented Ferns

The Hay Scented Fern scientific name is Parathelypteris noveboracensis. It is a very common fern that grows in mass colonies. It looks like a beautiful green carpet. It does well in covering large areas in a small amount of time. We sell this bare root, and it ships year round.

 Enjoy lush gardens delights of this fast growing Hay Scented fern.

The beauty of your garden can only be showcased to reflect sophistication, uniqueness, personality, and lushness. What better way to showcase this other than investing in the hay-scented fern genetically known as Dennstaedtia punctilobula. Belonging to the fern family, it is deciduous and the fronds when brushed with a hand, crushed or bruised releases a fragrance that reminds you of freshly mown hay. The fern is not only appealing to the eye but also easy to cultivate and maintain.

Ideal for Landscaping

The soft fragrance, the lacy look, the narrow- triangular shape, the low maintenance of the plant regarding time and effort, the ease of landscaping, border edging and naturalizing ground coverage all add to its beauty what’s not to appreciate in this plant.

Other Uses

This is great when used as a focal point for your garden be it a shade garden or cottage garden. It’s also beneficial for ground cover for sun and shade, covers a vast expanse, quick to grow and lives up to 10 years – gains points in my book, relatively immune to diseases, inexpensive while maintaining its remarkable characteristic- attractiveness.

Beautify your garden with the Dennstaedtia punctilobula, and nature never fails to please.

 This plant ships bare root (root/rhizome only) with no foliage at time of shipment. Guaranteed to grow!

Hay Scented Fern are simply beautiful!

    Product came shipped well. I was disappointed that of 11 ferns ordered only 5 grew. I was hoping for better odds.

    I had never ordered bare root ferns so wasn't quite sure what to expect. Received root segments with several small green bumps; potted them up and waited. Now I have 6+ sma; green fiddlehead like fronds begining to unfurl. Will wait till they are larger and more easily handled for transplant. Quite pleased with the plants and speed of shipment. Thank you!
