The Steadfast Guide to Garden Ferns


Dicksonia antarctica "Soft Tree Fern"

Although susceptible to hard frosts, protection is easy by just throwing an old blanket over the crown. By doing this, our specimen in the garden has kept its green fronds all winter. It will tolerate heavy shade as long as humidity is high. 1.8m plus.
