 Plant Description -

 The giant ostrich fern's large, majestic fronds are its most unique characteristic.

Named for their resemblance to an ostrich feather, the fronds unfurl from tight fiddleheads to reveal lush, filly plumes.

 This fern will require ample moisture, full shade to partial sun, and rich soil.

Deer tend to prefer tastier plants, meaning they will avoid giant ostrich ferns.

Smaller ostrich ferns thrive in a large planter or container on a deck or balcony, provided they are not in full sunlight.

 Giant ostrich ferns are perennials, so they can be expected to grow in lawns or gardens year after year. Their hardiness makes them ideal for difficult-to-plant regions, including those receiving frost and snow in the winter. 

 This fern produces a new set of new fronds, called crowns, each year surrounding the previous year's growth. This means that the fern will consistently grow in size year after year. Once the fern reaches its desired size, it can be easily divided by splitting the root ball and replanting each half.

 If you're a fan of edible foliage, the giant ostrich fern's young leaves, called fiddleheads, are considered a delicacy and can be cooked or steamed. Try them in a recipe as a replacement for other bitter greens like swiss chard.

 The giant ostrich fern can be expected to grow to between 3 and 6 feet with lush, green fronds. They make an ideal backdrop for annual flowering plants and are large enough to be used to delineate different sections of a landscape. Fern fronds can also provide lush green color and texture to cut flower bouquets and arrangements.
