Osmunda regalis - royal fern

Osmunda regalis, the royal fern or flowering fern, has tall fronds with lance-shaped leaflets that resemble the foliage of the locust tree. The spores emerge from the tips of the fertile fronds giving it the appearance of a crown or flowers. In wet, swampy conditions this fern can easily reach 6 feet tall or more but in the average garden it usually grows 3 to 4 feet high. This fern needs acidic soil for best growth. In alkaline soil it will be shorter with less robust growth and in highly alkaline conditions will languish or even die off.

Light:  Part shade to full shade Soil:  Humus-rich, consistently moist to wet
pH:  Acidic to neutral, avoid highly alkaline soil Zones:  3 - 10
