Comptonia peregrina

This aromatic little shrub from E North America has the common name 'sweet fern', which gives a hint to the unusual fragrant foliage. Stems and foliage are covered in fine hairs and small brown, glistening catkins are seen in spring. Makes a low suckering little colony, best in sun in never too dry lime free soil.
