Very hardy and fast growing tree fern. Trunk patterned by oval scars left by fallen tree fronds. Easily grown in a moist position in filtered or morning sun. Will tolerate full sun if kept mulched and given sufficient moisture.
Outstanding New Zealand tree fern with a stout black trunk. Fronds grow to 4m long and develop black stems on older plants. Very fast growing and easily established in a moist position in morning or filtered sun. Mulch well.
