 Cyathea medullaris
Family: Cyatheaceae
Mamaku, Black Tree Fern
Origin: New Zealand, Fiji, Polynesia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeKeep soil moistRegular waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

In New Zealand it is possibly the most common tree fern, and it is found growing in a large range of microclimates and situations throughout the island. It is a rapid grower and makes a very imposing specimen even in less than perfect conditions. Unlike C. dealbata and C. smithii, it generally found growing in open places with full exposure to wind and sun. Its large size and black shiny leaf bases make it a most spectacular plant in cultivation. The ideal situation for it is where its fronds get full sun, but the trunk can remain moist.
