If in doubt as to the fragrance of this fern, wait for a hot day in late summer and walk through a field of it, or pluck a handful and twist it in your hands.
This fern often will colonize areas of fields in cool, moist climates, and thrives in full sun in those locations. Also often found in woodlands and on moist rock.
Plant this fern at your own risk, and only if you can keep it positively contained.
