Botanical Name: Matteuccia struthiopteris
One of the largest and most popular ferns in cultivation, Ostrich Fern is a very showy, bold grower reaching heights of 2' to 5'. The dark green fronds are shaped like ostrich plumes, being much wider at the top and tapering down to a bare stipe. A wonderful addition to any moist woodland area or shade garden. It tolerates most soil types, but will do best in slightly acidic, moist to wet soil that is rich in organic matter. Prefers cooler climates but will tolerate hotter conditions so long as the soil is kept consistently moist. It spreads by underground rhizomes to form dense colonies.
Plant Hardiness Zones: 3-6
