New York Fern
The New York Fern is found throughout Virginia. It is one of the most sun and drought tolerant fern species. It is a deciduous perennial plant that disappears in the winter, but reappears in the spring. New York Ferns often form spreading colonies within the forests they inhabit. They are a vital source of food for the larva of the Pink-Shaded Fern Moth and provide cover for numerous life forms from the spring through the fall.
