A new variety coming to the nursery - if it grows!

Some formal info for you!

Cyathea Australi

This is a tree fern native to Australia.  It's also known as the Rough Tree Fern. It grows in moist shady forest, and hopefully soon in the East Sussex countryside!

It has a stem covered with frond scars, and a mass of wiry roots at the base. 

It can grow up to 12 m tall, and may reach 4 m in length, better tell the neighbours! It has a distinctive crown that is dark green above and lighter green below, should look great.
