I was hoping against hope that "cold hardy" meant clear up here in Zone 5, but I just missed it. We can dream, right? Loved the article, gained some new info, and those are some FABULOUS pics! Thank you!

This article and pictures makes me want to expand my collection of tree ferns. Thanks Palmbob for stoking the fire! Now I just need to get a bigger yard.

I read "not to zone 5" and became hopeful -- I'm in zone 6! Then I read that some can handle temperatures "as low as 20 degrees, and my hopes diminished. Somehow, I don't think tree ferns would take to being shoved into the basement like my bananas... ;-)

They are really remarkable plants, though. Thanks for sharing them with us!

Thanks for the article! And thanks for the tips on keeping the center part watered.
To think this was a scragly 1 foot across tree fern 2 years ago!!

Very good article. It opened a whole new world on tree ferns to me . I only knew Dicksonia sellowiana ,once common now in the endangered species list in Brazil. The article made me want to cultivate these other species of tree fern . Recently, I saw a a tree fern in a forest near my ranch in the Cerrado ( brazilian savanah ) . I still havenīt identified this plant . I hope to post the pics soon.

I saw quite a few in Costa Rica, do you know what type those are? May be same or similar as Brazil?
