Matteuccia struthiopteris ‘The King’

About Matteuccia: An easy fern to grow, Matteuccia spreads freely without being invasive. If one shows up in a wrong spot, it can be easily moved. A real boon to the woodland shade garden, it looks attractive on its own or combined with other shade loving plants.
