Hay-scented fern gets its name from the scent of its fronds when they're bruised. It is an upright native fern that tolerates a wide range of conditions, including dry shade, once established. Plants spread quickly to form a naturalized groundcover.
The upright arching stems of Solomon's seal echo the arching fronds of hay-scented fern. With its white leaf margins, the variegated form of Solomon's seal looks especially good with it.Turtlehead
Turtlehead matches hay-scented fern in height, but adds a splash of pink or white flowers in late summer shade.Lungwort
Low mounds of silver-splashed lungwort look attractive at the base of hay-scented fern. They, too, can tolerate dry shade.
