Large Fern

can anybody recommend a large fern native to the British Isles. The Australian Fern is too big for my needs.

    Dryopteris filix mas gets fairly large, fronds up to 5 feet long.
  • Thanks, that sounds good to me.

  • The biggest native fern is Osmunda regalis, the Royal Fern - up to 2m tall.  It likes wet soil.
    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.
