These hardy, slow growing tree ferns are from the Southern Hemisphere. Easy to transplant and establish.

Dicksonia antarctica

Native to southeastern Australia, Tasmania. Hardiest of tree ferns; well-established plants tolerate 20°F/-7°C. Thick, red-brown, fuzzy trunk grows slowly to 15 ft. Many arching, 3- to 6-ft. fronds grow from top of trunk; mature fronds are more finely cut than those of Australian tree fern (Cyathea).
