Pteris wallichiana is a rather impressive looking fern from the Himalaya region. Similar to our native bracken in its appearance it is far more exotic looking with its lovely dark brown stipes and large dark green fronds. The fronds can reach a height of 1.8 to 2 metres depending on the location. A moist free draining soil will give the best results, hardier than some ferns it is still recommended that you mulch the ground in late autumn.
