Matteuccia struthiopteris - Ostrich fern, Shuttle cock fern

Latin Name Matteuccia struthiopteris

Common Name Ostrich or shuttlecock fern

Is deciduous and cold hardy. Grows upright fronds that resemble a shuttlecock and hence the name sometimes given. Lovely fresh green fronds in the spring. Has runners from which new plants arise so needs a bit of space to spread itself out, but don't let it get out of control as can become invasive
Likes boggy areas most of all though provided the roots are kept moist it will stand the sun ok.
