Australian Tree Ferns

The Australian tree fern is also known in its native country as the Lacy Tree Fern because if its delicate fronds. It grows best in high humidity and very warm temperatures, so while the Australian tree fern can be grown outside as a grand specimen in South Florida, gardeners in North Florida should treat it as a house plant.
