Damp conditions and sheltered shade make this upright fern open its erect green fronds, like apple-green caterpillars stretching for more, an early summer phenomenon

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained, neutral to slightly acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This wonderful deciduous shuttlecock fern is at its most beautiful in spring when the large, pale green, lacy fronds start to unfurl and filter the sunlight. It is one of the best foliage plants for areas of moist, dappled shade and works particularly well planted in groups next to water or in a woodland garden in between deciduous trees.

  • Garden care: Remove dead fronds in early spring. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.

    Comments about Matteuccia struthiopteris:

    Damp soil all the year round required. This summer ( I live in Essex) all of mine died. We did have a very dry year but I was soaking the area religiously. Not good enough to keep them alive. Put one in a pot but it quickly outgrew it.
    By the way you really need to do some work on this page. Really annoying on an iphone!!
