Green ostrich fern matteuccia struthiopteris. Resembling the feathery appearance of an ostrich’s plumes, the foliage of this fern are bound to make a spectacular show in your shade garden. Growing 2-3′ in height in cultivation, this fern has been known to reach almost 6′ tall in moist and shaded natural areas. The inner, spike-like fronds are dark brown and are much shorter, only reaching 18-24” in height. Adds wonderful texture!
