Caring for Sweetfern

    Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Adaptable plant that tolerates wet conditions and wind (including sheltered seashore areas), drought and a wide range of soils (prefers sandy, acidic loams, but tolerates poor soils). Does not transplant well. Once established, however, it can spread rapidly to form colonies.

Typical uses of Sweetfern

Special features: A good shrub for areas with poor soils, such as along alleys, waste areas or roads. An interesting and vigorous plant for native plant gardens or naturalized areas where it can be left alone to colonize.

Culinary use: Leaves

Medicinal use: Sweetfern has medicinal properties and has been known to assist every organ in the elimination of toxins
