Macho (Giant Boston) Fern

Macho Fern is one of the most popular and lovedĀ Nephrolepis plants. This is a really big fern with wonderful cascading fountain-like display, and is commonly used as a landscape plant in Florida and as an annual in colder climates.

This tropical sword fern has fronds 8″ wide and 4 feet long. When planted in ground beds as an annual, it will grow 4 feet high and up to 72 inches across.

Macho Fern makes fabulous hanging baskets with its massive leaves, but it’s best to ship when the leaves are 18″ to 24″ long.
