Don't forget if you do burn your blueberries please remember to burn safely!

 


Hayscented Ferns  ~ Dennstaedtia PunctilobulaHayscented Ferns

Dennstaedtia Punctilobula

 

A very tough, lacy fern that spreads fast.  It adapts to drier soil as well as damp.  Fine textured it has a fresh spring green color.  It is a medium grower to about 15 inches and is from the Bracken Fern family.  A drift of Hayscented Fern is so relaxing and pretty to view.  The crushed fronds do have the scent of fresh hay!  Partial sun.  Golden fall color is a bonus.  A perfect plant to prevent erosion!

 


 Cinnamon Ferns ~ Osmunda Cinnamomea

Cinnamon Ferns

Osmunda Cinnamomea

 

Wonderful "Cinnamon Sticks!"  Always an eye catcher and easily recognized.  The big bold fern that can grow to 3 feet or more in favorable areas.  The unfurling fronds and stems have an appealing, rich wooly coating as they emerge from the ground in spring.  These beauties grow in moist woodlands, bogs, peatlands, thickets, swamps, ditches and stream banks.  Likes moderate shade.  A must have beautiful fern to compliment any garden! 

 


Haircap Moss ~ Polytrichum Commune Haircap Moss

Polytrichum Commune

 

The needle-like appearance of this moss doesn't reflect the softness of it when you run your hand across it!  Often reminds me of little pine trees even though they only grow about 1/2 inch to 3 inches tall.  Moss obtains all their nutrients from the air since moss has no true roots, moss plants require nothing more than a firm soil bed in a location with adequate shade, acidic soil and moisture to flourish.  Would love to have a home near your garden water feature.

Bunchberry Sod ~ Cornus CanadensisBunchberry Sod

Cornus Canadensis

 

Nothing is more exquisite than this lovely ground cover.  It grows just to 3 inches tall and slowly spreads.  Exotic, 2 inch whorled leaves which are dark-green and shiny in summer, become wine-red in fall.  Charming 4 point white flowers from late spring to summer, followed by scarlet berries in the fall.  Bunchberry is still used today in some preserves and sauces.  Partial sun/moderate shade, moist.  Definitely enjoyed in any Natural Landscape.

 


New York Ferns ~ Thelypteris NoveboracensisNew York Ferns

Thelypteris Noveboracensis

 

The New York Fern is a light and bright yellow-green fern that grows about a fooot tall, just a little shorter in height than the close relative the Hayscented Fern.  The fronds grow approx. 4 inches across.  The fine lacy texture of the fronds are from the Maiden Fern Family.  The lower and upper leaflets on the New York Fern are tapered with a lighter colored stalk than the Hayscented Fern.  Partial sun.  A true beauty in the garden!


Interrupted Ferns ~ Osmunda ClaytonianaInterrupted Ferns

Osmunda Claytoniana

 

An all-time favorite!  From the Royal Fern Family.  This is one of the leathery ferns.  A large robust, deciduous fern.  The height on these vary by age and location.  It is a distinctive fern as it lacks spores on the frond backs.  One to six of the leaflets at mid-stem on a few of the fronds will become a fertile spore cluster therefore interrupting the pattern of leaflets on the frond stem.  Likes moderate shade and moist to dry soil.
