Buy Sweet Fern online. Don't be fooled by its name...Sweet Fern is not a fern, but rather a deciduous shrub that grows in similar locations, and having fern-like foliage. Deep green leaves appear in spring and are aromatic when crushed, hence the name "sweet". It's a great plant for understory plantings with well drained soils.
