Hay-scented Fern Characteristics
Hay-scented Fern prefers shady locations but can tolerate full sun if the soils are kept consistently moist. While rich soils are preferable, these hardy ferns can tolerate poor, rocky, and dry soils. Well established plants are hardier than young ones. These ferns are rapidly spreading and form colonies quickly.
There are few serious disease or insect issues that threaten Hay-scented fern. Leaf scorch may cause the foliage to decline in the height of summer.
