Selected because of its vigor, 'Brentwood' is a fast growing tree fern with a thick trunk and a full crown of light-green fronds. It can be grown as a landscape plant in tropical zones or a potted container plant in the north. As it matures, braided roots form the trunk and it's recommended to water the trunk as well as the soil. The spectacular fronds in the leafy crown can reach up to 8' long when 'Brentwood' is grown under optimum conditions. Tree ferns are the largest ferns in the world and create magnificent specimen plants.

a fern with stamina Review by Amanda

Great fern, great quality. I bought this fern toward the end of winter, when the humidity in my home very low. It showed no signs suffering from dry air. I have no doubts about it getting through a long upstate NY winter indoors. I potted it some well draining mix so I could water it often and carefully. I misted the center once or twice a day. Now it sits happily outside under the trees, putting out new fronds constantly. It has lost a few fronds, but that is to be expected. It's how it forms a trunk. Happy with the quality and performance of this fern. (Posted on 6/22/2015)
