Osmunda Regalis 'Purpurascens,' commonly known as the royal fern or purple royal fern, is a striking deciduous fern that adds a touch of regal beauty to garden landscapes. Native to Europe, Asia, and North America, this fern is renowned for its distinctive fronds and vibrant colouration. The fronds are bipinnate, providing a feathery and elegant appearance. This fern is particularly attractive when planted in mass or as a backdrop in larger garden compositions.

The royal fern typically forms a large, vase-like clump with its arching fronds that can reach heights of up to 5 feet (1.5 meters). The name 'Purpurascens' alludes to the striking purple to reddish hues that often develop on the fronds, particularly during the growing season. This colouration adds a captivating dimension to the fern, making it a standout feature in gardens.
