About Osmunda

Osmunda are deciduous ferns, better suited to damp conditions. They fashion erect slender arching fronds that will often change colour during the autumn to reflect that gorgeous shades and tones of the season. Osmunda are best suited to flower beds and borders within an informal or wildflower meadow. You should expect to see Osmunda grow to an approximate height of 2.5 metres (8) and a spread of 1 metre (3).

How to plant Osmunda

Plant Osmunda in poorly-drained soil of clay, loam and chalk within an acidic, neutral or alkaline PH balance. It is a perfect addition for growing as a marginal plant around a pond or stream. To prepare the soil for planting, provide a generous amount of compost such as leaf mould, shredded bark or grit and gravel for heavier soil types and mix in well to the native soil. It is best positioned in an area of full sun providing it receives plenty of water.

How to care for Osmunda

Ferns do not generally require any pruning and are known for being low maintenance. Some ferns need no care at all after the first few years where they must be watered once or twice a week. Osmunda need regular watering during dry spells as the crown and trunk will not tolerate drying out at all. With most tree ferns, ensure the trunk remains damp during all conditions.

How to propagate Osmunda

It is possible to propagate Osmunda by division during early spring or autumn.
