Royal Fern - Osmunda Regalis is one of the enormous ferns in North America outside of the tropics.

Royal Fern produces a large amber inflorescence in the middle of summer that could easily be mistaken for a flower, giving it the nickname “the flowering fern.” You can expect it to grow from 3 to 6 feet in height, dwarfing the ferns that most know and love.

Royal fern has long, spindly branches with alternating green leaves on each side.

These branches grow in bunches that expand as the rhizomes below make their way through the soil.

Although it is pretty large and beautiful, this fern is one of the slowest to reproduce. Its rhizomes will leisurely creep through your garden and pop up new offshoots as it pleases, a very fitting personality trait for a royal plant.

You can speed up growth by planting this fern in acidic soil, as it tends to grow much more slowly in an alkaline or neutral PH. Picking a spot with high moisture retention will also ensure that your royal fern will stay happy and healthy. This species will do well in sand and clay if suitable for PH and moisture content. You might find this variety in a woodland bog or at the edge of a stream in the wild.

You can enjoy the royal nature of this beautiful specimen in zones 3-10. It makes it a highly versatile option for almost any garden in North America. Because of the moisture requirements, this fern makes an excellent leafy green accent on the North side of your home, under a shade tree, or in any other shady location on your property. You should give these plants about 18 inches of space to spread their lovely branches.
