Matteuccia struthiopteris - ostrich fern

Ostrich ferns have large, upright, deep green fronds that form a distinct vase shape along with 6 to 12" tall fertile fronds that rise up from the center of the crowns turning dark brown by the end of the summer. They are native to swampy areas and enjoy consistent moisture for best growth and performance yet spread vigorously from underground runners in almost any growing conditions.

Height: 36 - 60" Spacing: 18 - 24" apart or more
Light: Part shade to full shade Soil: Humus-rich, consistently moist
pH: Slightly acidic to slightly alkaline Zones: 2 - 6 (7)
