Dicksonia antarctica or the Tasmanian Tree Fern is perhaps the best known of all the tree ferns and possibly the toughest. It is easily recognised by its thick, soft brown trunk and graceful arching dark green fronds. In milder areas where the frosts are only light, it will keep its fronds all year round and with a new set produced each year can look quite spectacular. In colder areas it will have to be wrapped or at the very least, place a handful of straw in the crown to protect the new fronds. An amazing plant with nothing else quite like it!
