Tree Fern, Larnach Castle Garden, Dunedin, New Zealand

This tree fern is in the garden opposite the entrance kiosk. Its retained all its dead fronds which make a dense skirt around the trunk.


Me getting my shots and providing some scale to SO’s photo!




Here (above) you can see the new frond growing in the gap at the top.

    1. Thank you very much for your observation. My father wouldn’t allow TV in our house when I was a kid and I’d never seen the cartoon or The Addams Family. So when I saw a photo of Cousin Itt on Wikipedia just now I was greatly taken with the similarity … made me smile! Good start to the day 🙂

    1. Glad you enjoyed this Pete because we just love this tree fern too. Judging by the photos I’ve seen on your blog, of ice on your car, I’d hazard a guess that sadly you’d have a hard time growing a tree fern in your garden! Got any plans to move to Cornwall?
