Description
It's easy to see why this fern holds an RHS AGM! Handsome, upright fronds of up to 1.5m (59"), with gently drooping tips give Matteuccia struthiopteris its common name of Shuttlecock Fern. This noble perennial forms a large rosette of foliage that makes a spectacular display in spring as the new fronds begin to unfurl. A superb plant for damp, shaded borders, woodland gardens or when planted in the moist soil at the edge of ponds. Matteuccia is at its best when planted in large colonies for maximum impact! Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Matteuccia in a sheltered spot. Choose a position in dappled shade on fertile, moist, acid or neutral soil. Matteuccia ferns prefer a soil that is rich in organic matter so add some well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting.
More Info
Feed and water ferns regularly until they are fully established. Apply mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the crown of each plant in spring.
