Sweet Fern, so called because of the aroma its crushed leaves emit, is a native shrub to much of the eastern parts of North America. Don’t let the fern like foliage fool you. This plant is super hardy (to zone 3); it grows 2-5′ tall, and is tolerant of a wide range of soils, including sand. Besides being drought tolerant, Sweet Fern is deer resistant and a larval host for a variety of moths and the Gray Hairstreak (Strymon melinus) butterfly.
