The Ostrich Fern is often referred by many names such as Shuttlecock Fern, Fiddlehead Fern, and others. The botanical name for this fantastic fern is Matteuccia Struthiopteris. They are found in many places in the Northern Hemisphere such as northern Asia, northern North America and northern and central Europe. These ferns are quite beautiful and can reach heights of up to 6 feet and widths of 3 feet or more when fully mature. They get their name because the fronds on these ferns remind one of the plumes on an ostrich. These are quite graceful when fully mature. They tend to grow in colonies and can grow very dense. The botanical name, when translated, means ostrich wing. These ferns will grow best in full to partially shaded areas and look amazing along with the edges of ponds, lakes and even look good around the man made fountains and ponds if they are in a shady area. It is of importance to consider how large these ferns become when planting. They will need room to mature and spread out. USDA Climate Zones 2 through 7 will support these plants best, and they can reach their full growth potential in these areas. They are easy to grow and are a favorite of gardeners and landscapers because of their ability to adapt too many soil conditions provided there is moisture and good drainage available. They do love shade and grow best in shady areas. They will spread at a good rate of about 2 feet per year and make a super plant consider in areas where soil retention is a concern. When these are planted in a group, they are breathtaking when fully grown. They are a beautiful green.
