(The royal fern)
Family Osmundaceae
Originating from America, Europe and Asia

this most regal of ferns gains its common name from its being one of the largest and most distinctive European ferns. It forms colonies of enormous, upright fronds on fibrous rhizomes. These rhizomes can resemble trunks of short tree ferns, rising 20cm above ground and covered in black fibres - it is this fibre that is used as a growing medium for orchids. Osmunda regalis is a colourful fern - fronds emerging as purple fiddleheads, becoming blue/green, turning copper in autumn. During the growing season it produces russet fertile, spore-bearing fronds.
Grow in sun or shade in moist soil.
