Ostrich Fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris)

  • 2.5m wide x 1m tall (~8’ x 3’)
  • Partial to full shade
  • Moist to wet soil, NOT dry
  • Upright, clumping
  • Zone 3


A great option for that wet hard to plant spot in your yard. Ostrich ferns do not like to dry out and like cool, shady spots. The vegetative fronds, commonly know as ‘Fiddleheads’ are edible as long as picked before they start to unfurl
