Hayscented Fern creeps by rhizomes to form a solid groundcover that few weeds can penetrate. Native to the northeastern U.S. and Appalachian Mountains, this fern is excellent for naturalizing along woodland edges that receive partial sun. Lovely light green fronds stay low, seldom exceeding 18 inches in height. Hayscented Fern does best in well-drained soils, and thrives in well-drained rocky and sandy soils. Like most ferns, it is rabbit and deer resistant.
