Wooden Surface

Osmunda regalis

Strong but delicate looking upright bright green fronds are a unique texture and make Royal fern a fabulous addition to any part-shade to shady, moist area.


This species is a tall dramatic fern, that sets itself apart from other ferns!  Osmunda regalis does not mind standing water so is also a great addition to a bog or pond area.


Royal Fern is an important host plant for moth larvae (caterpillars), including Osmunda Borer Moth (Papaipema speciosissima).
