The attractive and highly aromatic fern-like foliage of this charming Eastern United States native gives off a wonderful spicy scent when crushed. Growing 2-5' high and 8' wide or more forming dense colonies, small green-yellow flowers in spring give way to small edible nutlets, in fall the leaves turn coppery-brown and persist well into winter. A nitrogen-fixing plant that is very adaptable thriving in infertile and dry gravely soils, making it an excellent choice for difficult spots, also excellent for stabilizing slopes and embankments; sweet fern is a larval host plant for the Grey Hairstreak Butterfly.
