About

Cyathea australis has large pale fronds which appear in batches through out the growing season unlike Dicksonia which tend to have most of there fronds in one go in the spring. The trunk has a very rough textured  to it it is covered in lots of small spikes and is dark brown in colour. As the name suggests this btree fern is from Australia it is not as hardy as Dicksonia antartica although it tends to grow at slightly higher altitudes it will take -6 to -8 when mature but will need winter protection. It will grow in a more open aspect than Dicksonia and does give a different look if you already have antarctica.

Origin

Australia

Planting and care If planting in the garden its best in moist semi shade and will need regular watering. The bigger the trunk gets the hardier it gets for most winters you will have to wrap the trunk and stuff the crown with straw. If your growing in a pot feed and water regularly if possible keep frost free in winter but do not let it dry out.
