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.
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
