Ostrich Fern

Matteuccia pensylvanica

Stately, upright 3–4' fronds resembling ostrich feathers grow by underground runners that die back in winter and reappear vigorously the next spring. The native Ostrich Fern tolerates wet soil conditions so give it room in moist, rich soil and it will provide erosion control as well as a dramatic effect. While it prefers open shade, it will tolerate sun in swampy areas.
