Dickosonia Antarctica is an evergreen tree fern from Australia. It has a soft trunk and gracefully arching dark green branches that needs care. It produces a new set of branches each year. Although it is a hardy fern, its younger fronds need to be protected during the colder months. It is only rated at H3 in terms of hardiness and needs sheltering during the normal winter months. No flowers grow from this plant and only dead or damaged fonds maybe removed during mainteance. It is generally both pest and disease free if it is placed outside. The final height is between 2.5 m – 4 m (8.2 ft – 13.12 ft) and the final width is between 2.5 m – 4 m (8.2 ft – 13.12 ft)
