The shade-loving Birds Nest Fern is native to Australia. It's glossy green leaves grow from a centre rosette and collect fallen leaves, giving the appearance of a birds nest.
They can achieve quite a large size when planted in the garden with a diameter of up to 1.5m! As an epiphytic plant they require good drainage and plenty of water!
A feature plant in any garden, the Birds Nest Fern is a spectacular addition to a tropical setting.
