This soft yellow-green fern is found in the woods all across the Northeast and is one of those perfect plants to transform your shaded backyard into a lush woodland. Creeping roots send up lush fronds in the spring that can reach up to 24" and 4" wide creating a colony of green that carpets the woodland floor. The frond itself tapers at each end, distinguishing itself from the Hay-scented Fern and giving it an unusual look and texture that makes it unique. New York Fern makes a good companion for spring ephermals such as Stylophorum diphyllum and Trillium grandiflorum, covering the gaps they leave in the woodland garden when they disappear in the summer heat. New York Fern requires consistently moist soils and filtered light but will thrive in shady places where other plants have failed miserably.
