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' wide, but 3' tall is more typical. The fertile fronds of the royal fern are brazenly exposed in public and appear as bronze spears emerging from the center of the clump in spring...a true Pee-Wee Herman moment.
