    A stunning, giant fern that really lives up to its regal name. In spring, huge, bright green fronds unfurl and filter the sunlight. In autumn, they turn bronze before dying back. This deciduous fern forms a natural, rounded shape and looks fantastic planted near a pond or stream, where its feathery fronds will be reflected in the water. It likes damp, preferably acid soil, and looks breathtaking with other moisture-loving, large foliage plants such as rodgersia and gunnera.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies inautumn or early spring.

Beautiful plant. Quite tall so not one for the front of a border. Likes a bit of sun as well which is useful for a fern.
