Royal Fern is one of the largest and most spectacular ferns for the garden. These plants form a distinctive clump of tall, arching fronds of bright green divided leaves. New growth in spring is purplish in colour, while the stems retain the colour all season long. Brownish spore-bearing pinnae are clustered at the end of each leafy frond in a short spike. Loves moist to wet soil, tolerating full sun in cool summer regions. Old leaves should be pruned to the ground in late winter. Deciduous
