North American Hay-Scented Fern

Dennstaedtia punctiloba

SKU
01925
Excellent fern for naturalizing due to the long creeping rhizomes that allow this fern to rapidly spread and produce patches of foliage instead of clumps. Works very well for woodland garden settings ranging from light shade to deep shade conditions.
