Dicksonia antarctica

Common Name: Soft Tree Fern/ Man Fern

Description: Dicksonia antarctica is a majestic, evergreen plant. It has a thick fibrous trunk, topped by an umbrella of many spreading dark green fronds. The soft tree fern is a great addition to any garden that requires a feature plant in a shaded or poorly drained area. They are also great providers of shade to other plants that may be under-planted and are great hosts to other ferns and epiphytes. The only maintenance this tree fern has is the removal of the dying fronds.
