I saw these for sale yesterday and was wondering if they really get as huge as claimed. Here's a photo of one I found. I am thinking about going back to get one. I love the Japanese ferns and these look amazing.

I do not grow it, but it certainly looks impressive. I also love the Japanese ferns, may have to put this one on my wish list.

A fern named 'Godzilla'?!! Blinking

DH used to use that as a gaming name... I'm going to have to look into that!

They say this can get 3 feet tall and 6 feet wide! I have to have one. It sure would save on the weeding. LOL.

Clint, where did you find it? I have a couple of J. ferns but they seem to stay on the small side.

They have it at a local nursery here but Plant Delights sells it online too. I think I like those Japanese ferns more than almost all of my plants.
