Matteuccia struthiopteris 'Jumbo' (Dryopteridaceae)
For those of you who love giant tree ferns but don't live in a rain forest, this is your best substitute. Already one of our largest native ferns, 'Jumbo' is half again larger than the average Ostrich Fern — established plants can reach 6' in height! Found from VA west to the Mississippi and north into Canada, this cold-hardy fern will also tolerate the heat of the middle South. Use in a natural setting where it can spread into a colony, or in a more formal garden as a showy specimen.
