More Information

Description The leaves of Ostrich Fern, or Matteuccia struthiopteris, resemble ostrich plumes with feathery, arching fronds! Charming fiddleheads emerge in the spring and unfurl as summer approaches. We love how it forms vase-like crowns, adding elegant shape and texture to the garden. This fern is an exceptional shade ground cover for woodland gardens, wild areas, or wet soils near ponds and streams. When given room to roam, it quickly spreads by underground rhizomes. It's low maintenance, cold and heat tolerant, and unbothered by deer and pests, making it a worry-free garden addition! Details Botanical name: Matteuccia struthiopteris

Healthy Little Ferns!

The ostrich ferns arrived extremely well packaged and vibrant green. They are thriving in the new garden.

When the fern arrived almost all its leaves had dried out. I cut them down and new leaves started appearing within a week. The fern is now planted in a large planter in a shaded part of my garden and already has 7 or 8 feet long leaves. It appears to be doing great.

Very healthy and well packaged for delivery

I have terrible luck as a gardener, and also what does grow is generally eaten by deer. So, I trusted the information and instructions on planting and deer resistance. I placed a large order and every one of my plants have done very well. I ordered a variety of ferns, planted as advised, and all my ferns are growing lushly. I'm super happy with everything I ordered. Nothing has died and nothing has been nibbled by deer.
