Ostrich Fern 'The King' - 4.5 Inch Container
(Mature Size: 36-84"T x Clumping)
The giant Ostrich Fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris) 'The King' - is a huge spreader ready to fill your vacant meadow!
It is native to much of northern North America, and with its cold tolerance it leads off the spring with magnificent fist-sized green fiddleheads.
When well-watered, the height of this fern can approach seven feet. (No head in the ground for this bird!)
Autumn turns the deciduous sterile fronds a glowing golden yellow while the separate fertile fronds fade from green to brown and remain erect throughout the winter.
Underground runners "run" out forming surrounding colonies making this very useful for a quick cover. And if you don't like it you can always eat it as these are the fiddleheads of gourmet restaurants.
Ostrich Fern has won the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
This fern normally prefers northern climates, but this selection will do well in the southeast as well.
