A dramatic but at the same time graceful fern with fresh, light green, airy bi-pinnate leaves. The fronds die back for the winter forming an almost trunk like rhizomatous mound over time from which the following years fiddlesticks will emerge. Royal ferns grow best in part sun or part shade in a humus-rich, fertile soil with moist to boggy conditions. Cut the fronds back in fall after the foliage drops.
You will receive a young plant in a 9cm pot. May be sent cut back or dormant in winter.
