Matteuccia struthiopteris - Ostrich Fern
One of our largest ferns often reaching heights of 5 feet. A very graceful tropical looking fern. The fronds get wider toward the top. Plant in a wet area and it will spread and make a nice mass quickly. If the soil is real wet it can take some sun. They will usually start to go dormant sometime in August or September especially if it is hot or dry. Does not like hot climates it is more of a northern variety fern.
Shade to Semi-shade, Wet Soil, 3-5 ft Tall, Zones 2-7
