Royal Fern

Out of stock

The Royal Fern, Osmunda regalis, is a tall, deciduous fern which usually occurs on moist bluffs, ledges and along streams (sometimes growing in the water). Royal Ferns typically grows in clumps to 2-3' tall, but with constant moisture can reach 6' in height.

The broad fronds have large, well-separated pinnae (leaflets) which give this fern an almost pea-family appearance. Fronds typically turn yellow to brown in autumn.

The Royal Fern is also known as the Flowering Fern and is deciduous. Spores are located in brown, tassel-like, fertile clusters at the tips of the fronds, thus giving rise to the additional common name of flowering fern for this plant.

Need protection for wildlife in your yard? This large fern occasionally forms sizable colonies that provide cover for wildlife. And if you are looking for a plant that can thrive in wet areas along ponds, streams, water gardens or in bogs, the Royal Fern is an excellent choice for you.

You can expect Royal Fern to grow well in shaded borders, woodland gardens, wild gardens or native plant gardens too.
