Cibotium chamissoi

This species is a large, beautiful tree fern with an upright habit.  Its cold-hardiness, I would speculate, may be intermediate between that of C. menziesii and C. glaucum.  Apparently it forms suckers on the trunk resulting in multiple crowns.

This little Cibotium chamissoi was sent to me in a plastic bag from Hawaii.  This one crozier started emerging, and now it has come to a stand-still just like this.  I hope it lives.  Photo by the author.
