A "Sweet Fern" that's not a Fern!

Sweetfern - Comptonia peregrina

Apparently a common native in Eastern North America from Quebec to Georgia Comptonia peregrina is rarely seen or offered for sale here on the West Coast even though it grows well here. This is probably because it doesn't root from softwood cuttings. It can however be propagated fairly easily from root cuttings.
