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!

    Can't Wait to See...

    May 03, 2023 Reviewer: Melissa M

    My bare roots arrived looking happy and healthy. We still have frost and snow so they'll incubate inside for a few weeks before I acquaint them with their new home. The hay scented fern is new for me so I'm excited to see the results. NWN kept me updated regarding status of my order and delivered all of my plants promptly.

    The plants arrived promptly, and look promising. I wish there was a bit more in the way of specific planting and care instructions. I'm going to plant them out, and hope for the best.

    The bare root plants appear healthy.

    Nov 28, 2022 Reviewer: M Suter

    I am not an expert at handling bare root plants. I would greatly appreciated a little note of guidance in planting. I'm planting them in pots so I can move them in the spring to where they can thrive.

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

    Pleased with the size of the root sent. Now if I can only get the squirrels to stop digging them up! Can't wait for the ferns to show.
