I do so love these tree ferns, I will not be happy until I get one........the trouble is I need to create a micro-climate!!

They're looking really fresh and clean with all the rains.

It's definitely not a cold-hardy fern. It would need to be protected there for sure. I saw many very large, old Australian tree ferns die in the San Francisco Bay Area (especially inland areas) during the worst freeze ever recorded, in Dec. 1990.

If you like a small scale tree fern...check out: Blechnum gibbum - Silver Lady Fern, Dwarf Fijian Fern. I've posted several pics of my fern and others on GoY in the past.
