Royal fern is truly one of the most distinctive and spectacular bold textured deciduous native ferns. The light green leathery leaves give a very tropical appearance. With adequate moisture, royal fern can reach 6' tall x 3' in width. The fertile sex organs of the royal fern are brazenly exposed in public (as with the presidential fern) and appear as bronze spears, emerging from the center of the clump in spring. This strain of royal fern has a dark purple stipe/rachis (stem) adding to the beauty.
