D. antarctica. Wide-spread species growing from south-eastern Queensland, through the NSW and Victoria coast and in Tasmania. This species is endemic to Australia. In the wild this species likes to live in moist areas with high water content in wet sclerophyll forests, along creek beds, in gullies and occasionally at high altitudes in cloud forests.Dicksonia antarctica
Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) grows naturally in woodland & is happy in shade. Boxwood has sweetly scented evergreen foliage, & works as an informal ground cover or pruned to contrast with other textures, as here with the tree fern Dicksonia antarctica.
Few plants offer such riches as the Soft Tree Fern - Dicksonia antartica. It somehow combines the filigree elegance of a fern with the size and presence of a tree and lends an air of the primordial forest wherever it is planted.
