Pteris wallichiana 'Hualien Giant' was one of the most impressive ferns we encountered on our 2008 expedition to Taiwan. At this 7,900' elevation site in Hualien County, Pteris wallichiana made dramatic, tropical-looking, 8' tall specimens with bizarrely branching fronds. Pteris wallichiana 'Hualien Giant' has been winter hardy in our garden since 2009, where it has so far reached 4' tall. Pteris wallichiana does spread a bit via thick underground rhizomes, so plant accordingly. While Pteris wallichiana has tolerated dry sites in our trials, it has grown much faster in rich, slightly moist organic soils.
