Matteuccia struthiopterisCommon Name: 'Shuttlecock fern'
AGM. A very popular, deciduous hardy fern, which has a distinctive, shuttlecock-shaped appearance. Looks particularly attractive as the bright green fronds unfold in late spring, becoming duller as the year progresses. H120cm S75cm.
Easy to grow in most cool, moist, shaded sites and useful for very wet sites. Spreads by under ground runners so that you get a baby shuttlecock appearing near to the parent.
