Cyathea cooperii 'Australian Tree Fern'- Fastest growing of the hardy tree ferns. Can grow from 1 feet to 6 feet spread in a year, eventually to 20 feet tall. Broad fronds are finely cut, bright green to a spread of 12 feet. Reasonably safe in sheltered places along the coast and in warm coastal valleys.

Ferns are seedless vascular plants that produce spores instead of seeds. Ferns are a very ancient lineage of plants that date back over 400 million years. Today, ferns are used as specimens in atriums, greenhouses, and conservatories and can be found in the smallest apartments to the largest homes. They offer a quiet, graceful beauty by softening landscapes indoors and out. Although ferns lack the bright colors of flowers, they are tremendously diverse in frond size, shape, division, texture, and color. Ferns are especially useful in the shady garden and landscape. When ferns are grown outdoors during summer, they should be located in the cooler areas of the garden, usually in deep shade. Never expose ferns to full sun in summer. Ferns prefer a slightly moist media with good drainage.

Peak Period: Middle Devonian (410 to 360 million years ago) In their prehistoric heyday, ferns dominated landscapes. Many evolved into modern plants, and more than 12,000 species thrive today. From big tree ferns to tiny, wispy strains, they reproduce from spores found beneath their fronds, or leaves.
