Dicksonia fibrosa

Over the last few years we have, due to the cold late winters, sadly, lost three of the Dicksonia antarctica planted in the tree fern glade. These dead ferns have today been replaced by three hardier, slightly smaller, tree ferns, Dicksonia fibrosa, The Woolly Tree Fern. 
Dicksonia fibrosa also comes from New Zealand, growing on both the North and South Islands and, in its native habitat, experiences temperatures as low as -11°C, so is thought to be hardier than the previously planted antarctica. The beautiful, jade green fronds can grow between 1.5-2.1m creating a canopy of up to 4m in diameter, a great addition to our tree fern glade.
