NZ King Fern | Rare Native
The King Fern is a native to New Zealand. Large tropical in appearance, it has fronds that grow from the base which was a traditional food for Maori. Sadly the King fern is in decline in New Zealand, threatened by feral, cattle, wild pigs and goats.
It thrives in limestone-rich soils. You would normally see them at entrances to NZ caves and shady stream areas. The King Fern does well in large pots or tubs used in a difficult places where nothing else will grow. It can be grown in the open, the best results is when it’s planted in rich soil in a sheltered shady wet position.
King Fern makes a grand statement in the garden and can spread sometimes 6-10 metres wide, spreading dark shining green fronds arising up to 5 metres or more.
