Overview Care
The Ostrich Fern is named for its' long, plume-like foliage that resembles Ostrich Feathers. A great choice for shady, damp areas of your garden though it tolerates dappled sunlight just fine. Like many Perennials, it may take a season to get established, but once it does, it makes a magnificent green backdrop for other shade loving perennials such as bleeding hearts and coral bells as well as shade-loving annuals like Impatients. Well-drained and rich, acidic soil will help your Ostrich Fern to thrive.

Provide organically rich, moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established maintain evenly moist soil. Apply a general purpose fertilizer frequently during the growing season. Cut back old fronds after new growth begins in spring.
