Ostrich Fern is Moisture Loving Fern

Ostrich Fern - Matteuccia struthiopteris. The Ostrich Fern is native to North America and is a favorite ornamental plant in gardens that have even won the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit based on its performance under the United Kingdom growing conditions. The Ostrich Fern is very expansive as it rises vertically from a central crown, then grows out laterally.

Ostrich Fern is a Favorite Ornamental Plant for Gardens

Ostrich Ferns have left of this plant usually about three feet long and curved gracefully at the tips, and the plant itself is nearly equally broad. The new leaves called fiddleheads since their shape is similar to that of a violin stem. They were a favorite food for Native Americans and still eaten in many parts of the county. Much like its name the fronds are very feather like and quite large as ostrich plums.


A moisture loving fern, it does beautifully near a pond or water feature and quickly grows through underground runners, making it ideal and low effort ground cover. Damp shady areas with fertile soil are typical, serves equally well for borders, slopes, and as a backdrop for flowering plants such as daffodils and iris, whose bright flowers will stand out against the robust fern foliage. It is also very tolerant of rabbits which help protect it from scavenging.
Ostrich Fern found along streams and ponds along shaded woodlands. It would plant along a lake or if you prefer against a wall so that it may fare better against the elements. You will see Ostrich Fern in Eastern and Northern Europe, Northern North America and eastern Asia. The ostrich fern would make a lovely addition to any landscape.
