What you get

You will receive a fully rooted 1ltr pot.


Osmunda regalis is a magnificent deciduous fern that forms a large woody mound over many years; a mature specimen can reach 1.5m in height and spread, however this will take many years. The large green fronds are very erect in spring and spread more as years goes on.


Europe including the UK, and Asia.

Planting and care

Best in semi shade but will grow in full sun - must have moist soil.

Ferns generally prefer shade and moist soil, especially in the hottest parts of the day. Most shady garden borders or woodland areas are perfect. If the area you are planting on is dry, or you are planting in summer make sure they are well watered until they are established. You should not need to feed your ferns in the garden, but a good mulch will help greatly.


Ferns will grow on most soils as long as your soil is not at the extreme ends of the pH scale (on chalk). Adding organic matter to your soil will help retain moisture in a sandy soil or open up the structure of a clay soil to stop water logging. Adding a good mulch will also help keep down weeds. 


Great plants for the shady garden border, woodland planting, creating a fernery or as pot plants for a shady spot.
