Description

Does not flower.  Plant in part or full shade.   HxS 1mx1m

This is an asiatic species enjoying part or full shade provided the soil is moist enough.  The non-fertile pinnate fronds arch towards the ground while the fertile ones stand erect in the centre of the plant.  It is deciduous and happily came through -15C in 2010 although some feel it is tender!  Grow it and know it – the oriental Ostrich Fern is a great plant for associating with other ferns, bamboos or tree ferns.  When in growth this is one of our most popular ferns.  Hardiness rating H5.

Care & Maintenance.

Mulch the crown in winter to protect from frost.  Collect spores from fertile fronds, although be aware it may take a year or two to produce them.  Alternatively, divide carefully as new growth starts in the spring.
