Dicksonia Antarctica has to be one of my favourite of all the ferns. Tender in our zone 8 climate but well worth it. This one I got at the Pacific Northwest Palm and Exotic Plant Society plant sale a while back has the longest fronds of any Dicksonia Antarctica I have seen for a fern of this size. Maybe it will be a vigorous grower for me (wishful thinking I know).
Ferns ferns ferns. They pop up everywhere in the yard and I never really seem to mind.
Slowly the small and compacted little fiddle heads turn into graceful fronds.
Keeping with the Disney theme, "FERNS are friends, not food!" Well fiddle heads are, but I've never been able to eat them for the reason that I feel as though I'm killing a fern.
