Matteuccia orientalis

Oriental Ostrich Fern,

Matteuccia orientalis, also known as Oriental Ostrich Fern, is a deciduous fern admired for its graceful fronds and versatility. Originating from East Asia, it flourishes in damp, shaded woodland settings but can endure varying light levels. Its lush green foliage emerges in spring, elegantly unfurling throughout the season, reaching heights of up to one metre.

Hardy and undemanding, it gradually spreads via rhizomes, forming dense clusters. A favourite choice for gardens and landscapes, Matteuccia orientalis offers both aesthetic charm and the ability to naturalise effortlessly in shaded areas.

Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Matteuccia orientalis, the Oriental lady fern, thrives in partial to full shade and moist, well-draining soil. Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry spells, to maintain soil moisture. It typically reaches heights of up to one metre (and occasionally slightly more) and spreads gradually via rhizomes, forming dense clumps over time.

To control its size and spread, dividing mature clumps every few years is recommended. Mulching around the base helps retain moisture and suppresses weeds. Pruning dead fronds in late winter or early spring rejuvenates the plant. With proper care, Matteuccia orientalis adds a touch of lush greenery and elegance to shaded garden spaces.
