Dicksonia squarrosa is a hardy New Zealand native tree fern and grows a tall, slender, brown trunk up to approx 6m high. The fronds, reaching 1.5 – 3m in length, form a small “umbrella” on top of the trunk. It is the most popular New Zealand tree fern and is easy to grow and maintain.
This variety will tolerate up to minus 5 degrees centigrade. It is best suited to a site with partial shade and minimal wind.
