‘The King’ Ostrich Fern
OUT OF STOCK: This item is currently out of stock, but we will have more soon!

Aptly named, ’The King’ Ostrich Fern can reach 6’-7’ in height! With a commanding, erect presence, it shoots up from a bronze base to form a towering vase of plume-like fronds. The large, graceful fronds resemble ostrich plumes. Spreads by underground rhizomes.

Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.
