Ostrich Fern

Ostrich Fern

Large and vase-shaped, with beautifully textured fronds, Ostrich Fern creates a dramatic effect in the shade garden. Excellent for naturalizing, it is a good choice for stabilizing soils along shady stream banks and ravines. In optimal moist conditions Ostrich Fern can spread and form dense colonies. The emerging fiddlehead shoots are considered a delicacy, when cooked. Ostrich Fern is both, deer and rabbit resistant. At maturity, the Ostrich is 36-60" tall , 36-48" wide
