 Cyathea cooperi, Sphaeropteris cooperi
Family: Cyatheaceae
Australian Tree fern, Hapuu Fern
Origin: Australia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Cyathea cooperi has a slender trunk usually about 3 - 6" thick, sometimes growing to 30' high, and puts on growth very quickly. The fronds typically will reach about 8' long on a mature specimen, but, as with most tree ferns, they will be significantly stunted if kept in a pot. It will grow well in dappled (but not deep) shade, but also does well in some sun, even in hot climates, as long as the moisture supply is adequate. It also does relatively well in exposed, windy situations. Propagation: Wind-dispersed spores.

The information provided on your website about adding "Hawaii" spirit to a persons home is misinformed. In fact, this tree fern is native to Australia and is considered invasive in Hawaii. I think it would be more respectful to the Hawaiian Islands, those that reside there, your potential or repeat customers, and to the tree itself if you delete the statement about the tree fern bringing "Hawaii" spirit to one's home. Just thought I'd share the knowledge. Thanks for your time.

The plant pictured on this page is NOT the native Hapu'u Tree Fern, but the invasive Australian Tree Fern which is considered noxious weed to the state of Hawai'i.

You list this fern as

Australian Tree Fern, Hapu'u

I sincerely hope that you are not confusing those two DIFFERENT types of ferns. The Australaian Tree Fern is one of the top 5 worst invasive species in Hawai'i, taking over indeginous forests and reducing the number of NATIVE HAPU'U ferns. If you live in Hawai'i, please do not plant the Australian tree Fern. Help the native plants essential to maintaining eco system services and a balanced watershed and PLANT THE HAPUU.

Thank you.

Australian Tree fern - one of the most tropical looking plants. Adds "Hawaii" spirit to your garden. It puts on growth very quickly. The fronds typically will reach about 8' long on a mature specimen, but, as with most tree ferns, they will be significantly stunted if kept in a pot. It will grow well in dappled (but not deep) shade, but also does well in some sun, even in hot climates, as long as the moisture supply is adequate. It also does relatively well in exposed, windy situations.
