  • Royal fern is a tall, deciduous, Missouri native fern which usually occurs on moist bluffs and ledges and along streams (sometimes growing in the water), primarily in the southeastern Ozark region of the State.
  • Typically grows in clumps to 2-3' tall, but with constant moisture can reach 6' in height.
  • Broad fronds have large, well-separated pinnae (leaflets) which give this fern an almost pea-family appearance. Fronds typically turn yellow to brown in autumn.
  • Spores are located in brown, tassel-like, fertile clusters at the tips of the fronds, thus giving rise to the additional common name of flowering fern for this plant.
  • Osmunda fiber used in the potting of orchids comes from the fibrous roots of these ferns.
