Dicksonia Antarctica Tree Fern
A fantastic, tree-like fern with a thick mass of roots that form a trunk and large, up to 3m (10ft) long, filigree-like fronds.impressive tree ferns are one of the oldest plants in the world and add a touch drama to any garden. They are native to Australia and Tasmania, and since they are slow growing, can take 10 years to grow only 30cm of trunk. Try them in a semi-shaded spot, among ferns and woodland plants, as part of an exotic scheme, or beside water. They are hardy to -10 degrees C, although the foliage may die back at -2 degrees C. They will happily grow in any soil as long as the trunk is kept moist.
Please note as we have carefully potted up our tree ferns the size listed refers to the full length of trunk supplied and includes the height of the pot.
Garden care:As these plants absorb their nutrients through the trunk, water and feed by spraying the whole stem and crown.
