(Award of Garden Merit) Family Osmundaceae
Originating from America, Europe and Asia
Osmunda regalis is a colourful fern - new fronds unfurl with a hint of pink, becoming apple green, turning copper in autumn. During the growing season it produces russet fertile, spore-bearing fronds. Given plenty of space it makes a stunning, architectural feature.
Grow in sun or shade in moist soil.
