Eastern Hayscented Fern Dennstaedtia punctilobula (Michaux) T. MooreSynonyms: Hay-scented Fern.

Status:

Because this species has the ability to spread quickly and does not appeal to deer, it appears to be increasing in some areas as a dominant fern along woodland edges, in sunny situations, and on acidic slopes (J. Solem, pers. comm.).

There are 169 records in the project database.
