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!
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!
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.
