Sweet Fern
Comptonia peregrina
This low growing shrub does best in sandy soils, from well-drained dry sites to the edges of marshes. Multiple stems with loose, spreading branches. Long, narrow, olive-green leaves have rolled back rounded edges. Flowers are brown catkins that appear before the leaves unfold. A small nut is enclosed in a bur-like husk. Grows in Full sun to light shade. Leaves have a pleasant fragrance when crushed, hence the name. Often forms large colonies, so give this plant some room.
