Description:

Beautiful, finely cut, broad, bright green fronds spread out from atop a slender trunk, creating a lush and exotic accent with a palm tree-like affect. The fastest growing of the tree ferns and a stunning specimen for adding a tropical element to large containers on patios or indoors, or in temperate landscapes. A frost-tender evergreen.

Design Ideas: Tree ferns are excellent for shaded nooks and under the canopies of larger shade trees. They add a decidedly lush exotic character to any space, be it under eaves or in atriums. Give them plenty of room overhead and combine with large-leafed foliage plants and very fiery colored exotic flowers.

Thrives in warm, humid environments with humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil and dappled shade. Protect from harsh afternoon sun exposures in very hot regions. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep the root zone cool and conserve moisture. Feed lightly, periodically throughout the year.
