Comptonia is a monotypic genus in the family Myricaceae, order Fagales. It is native to eastern North America, from southern Quebec south to the extreme north of Georgia, and west to Minnesota.

Common name: sweet fern

Bloom time: April to May
Height: 2.00 to 5.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Did the cheery-looking box of Mickey Mouse adhesive bandages that my friend Bill handed me actually contain adhesive bandages? No. Instead, fuzzy green buds spilled out. An illicit drug? No again. Those “buds” were sweet fern seeds, which Bill suggested planting.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Water: Medium

Temprature: -40°F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Sweet fern (Comptonia peregrina) is a native plant, one of my favorites, valued for its resinous aroma.
  • That aroma always transports me in time back to summer days hiking in the White Mountains along sunny dirt roads lined with sweet fern when I was nine years old.


Special Feature:
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. Also a good plant for stabilizing slopes or embankments.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
  • Its generally kep indoor in living room and in terrac area.


Note:
No significant insect or disease pests.
