What's my zone?


Green, Yellow

Mix of Sun & Shade



This native perennial is a good choice for naturalizing a shaded area quickly. Yellow-green lacy foliage turns golden in the fall and provides great texture when in mass plantings. Thrives in shady areas but will tolerate sun as long as there is adequate moisture and good drainage.  Hayscented Fern is quite adaptable to various soil types and will grow in very moist areas with ease while providing great cover for all your valuable landscape critters.
