Detailed Description for Osmunda

Osmunda regalis, Royal Fern, adds an elegant and royal appearance to any water garden. Like its cousin the Cinnamon Fern it likes its feet wet and ankles dry and will form its own island like tussock as it matures. Osmunda regalis has a much finer texture and looser foliage. Upon maturity it stands up to 4’ tall, tolerates filtered sun to part shade and is hardy in zones 3-9.
