Product Description

New York Ferns 

New York Ferns scientific name is Parathelypteris noveboracensis. It is a familiar plant that grows in mass colonies. It looks like a beautiful green carpet. It can be invasive. So although it can be used in gardens, it is also great for large wild areas. We sell this bare fern root, and it ships year round.

It has bright green frond with the leaves at the frond tapering both at the tip and at the base.

The New York Ferns often grow as ground covers in gardens, and only grow to the height of one to two feet tall.

It thrives in a climate zone of five to eight and grows in partial shade. It can also develop in mildly sunny areas. They are super easy to grow. There is no need to worry when it comes to weather. This plant is resilient and can withstand harsh weather conditions. You can purchase this product for as low as $1.39 and get to experience the joys of having this plant in your garden.

New York Fern is smaller than the average fern.

Most people have overlooked ferns in general. However, this product unknown to many is straightforward to manage, and also gives you a sophisticated look in your garden. Unlike other garden flowers, this plant is less likely to attract pests and diseases. They are also not troubled by squirrels, rabbits or deer hence making it the best plant for the garden. Fast growing ferns are perfect for covering large areas that are needing a little extra touch of landscape. That is as simple as it gets.

 This plant ships bare root (root/rhizome only) with no foliage at time of shipment. New York ferns are guaranteed to grow!

    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 New York fern is new for me - I'm sure it will be beautiful. NWN kept me updated regarding status of my order and delivered all of my plants promptly.

    Looked very tiny when arrived but grew well to a gorgeous plant. Insects don’t bother it. Nice!

    These started slowly in this cold spring, but they're growing well now. I have them in a shaded bed near the house, hoping to fill in an empty space with greenery that deer and rabbits won't eat. So far, so good!
