Ostrich Fern

Description
The perfect perennial for shady spots, this fabulous fern bears beautiful, finely dissected fronds that resemble the fluffy tail plum-age of its namesake bird. When planted in masses, it makes a real statement in the landscape. Plus, it's ideal for adding beauty and interest to wooded areas and around trees and shrubs. Foliage is medium green and makes a colorful contrast to the darker sites on your property.

Shipping Note:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
After you place your order you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate.

You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Only 1 of my first 6 sprouted. I called customer service and was immediately sent replacements. I am happy to say all of the new batch sprouted and are thriving!

Definitely a nail bitter on this one. Ferns are generally hardy in my opinion so I am disappointed that at 3-weeks only half of my order has come up. Fingers crossed.
