Melm -

Would like to see a photo of your Australian tree fern...Been intrigued by them since seeing one on a Sat. garden show (tv).


Fort Pierce, FL(Zone 10a)

Me too, melm. I love ferns and the Australian Tree Fern is one I'm yearning for.

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 8b)

I'm also growing an Australian Tree Fern in my garden in Jax. It survived temps as low as 28 F on a few nights this past winter. I had covered it with plastic (mostly some old shower curtains) on the coldest nights. I've had it only about 1 year, but it is growing nicely for me.

There is an Australian Tree Fern at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd that I saw when attending their free Sunday night chamber orchestra concerts once a month for the past two months. That tree fern is about 8 ft high with a frond span of about 6 ft. Very impressive! I'm not sure how old it is. The gardeners at the church split up the courtyard into several little "territories" and each gardener takes responsibility for their own section for selecting and maintaing the plants. The area where the tree fern is located is very obviously tended by a master gardener. The plants are all landscaped wonderfully and includes some unusual plants, among them being White Flowering Firecracker Plant (Russelia equisetiformis 'alba') which I didn't know existed until I saw it there! With the rector's permission (unlicensed pilfering and bending my 'scruples' at the church might result in some bad karma), I pinched off some flowering tips of the White Firecracker and brought them home to root. Thus far, they are hanging in there and it looks like I may have this odd variety as yet another specimen to add to my own little version of a "botanical garden."
