The Ostrich Fern or Matteuccia struthiopteris is also called "Glade" Fern and is one of the best ornamental plants for multiple environments

It is native to North America and has managed to win the Royal Horticultural Society's Award. This deciduous plant has dimorphic fronds. The sterile fronds are generally vertical and tall, growing up to 100-170 cm plus taking up the width of about 20-35 cm. They are named after ostrich plumes as they resemble them in shape. Ostrich Ferns are known for their graceful, feathery plumes, which emerge chartreuse in spring before maturing to a darker green.


Ostrich Ferns (Glade) are Larger Than Normal Sized Ferns

The perfect choice for most gardens or naturalizing, these ferns are adaptable to various soil types and light conditions. Some plants can stand the dampness when it comes to moist soil, while others need extra moisture. Growing Ostrich Ferns are a great way to add a complete look along with those moist areas of your yard or property. They come in a clumping growth habit and love the shade! These deciduous perennials will come back each year without hesitation and will even grow faster than you expect if conditions are right. Plus, they are not that vulnerable to full sun but require more moisture to balance out their growing needs. Set off other plants with the Giant Ostrich Fern. When grown together, this hardy fern complements the other plants or flowers and contrasts with its dark stalks, light stems, and wispy green leaves. The contrast of light and dark colors makes the whole area aesthetically pleasing.
If you're thinking of bringing some stunning greenery inside, these Ostrich Fern houseplants do well as long as their outdoor growing conditions are met. Keep them out of direct light and keep them moist, but be prepared for an occasional dormant season where your plant needs time to rejuvenate. Our customer service team is always here to help if you have further questions.
