Dicksonia antarctica
A stunning, evergreen tree fern (classed as deciduous in colder climates) which can reach up to 3 metres in length. It is very slow-growing, often only achieving 30cm of trunk in 10 years! These impressive ferns are thought to be one of the oldest plants in the world, and will add a touch of drama and architecture to any garden. If kept moist, the top portions can be replanted and will form new roots. The trunk, however, will not regenerate once cut. The Dicksonia antarctica is classed as half-hardy, and will therefore require some protection during cold winters.
