Ostrich Native Fern

Quantity Available:
300

Ostrich fern is popular for its erect stature and graceful arching fronds (leaves) that resemble huge ostrich feathers. Each frond of this widely grown fern is cut into numerous leaflets and sub leaflets. It colonizes fairly fast by spreading rhizomes but rarely becomes invasive. Ostrich fern grows best in moist soil conditions but tolerates occasional drought when established.
