Cyathea cooperi‏

Cyathea cooperi is a fast grrowing tree fern. It is native to New South Wales and Queensland, Australia.

This spectacular tree fern enjoys a sunny position for best results. Keep protected in winter, this tree fern will makes a fine addtion to any garden.

Hardiness: Not a hardy fern in almost every part of Ireland and Britain without some winter proctection. It will only tolerate temperatures of down to -1 or -2 celsius for short periods. It will need winter protection to survive or grow in a pot and take indoors over the winter period.

I have grown one in the Ladies Walled Garden for the past 3 years (planted as a trunked specimen in 2015) which has survived without any protection.
