Family Onocleaceae
Originating from Europe, Asia and N. America

An erect shuttlecock of vibrant, light green fronds up to 1.8m long, emerges in spring, often one of the first ferns to produce new foliage in the garden. It spreads by underground rhizomes and each year new shuttlecocks emerge at a random distance from the parent plant, eventually forming a colony.
Grow in moist soil in part shade. They will tolerate dry soil but the size will be severely restricted.

Height and spread after 2 -3 years 1.2m x 50cm
Mature height and spread after 5 – 6 years 1.5m x 1.5m
