Commonly known as the silver fern or silver tree-fern, or as ponga or punga, is a species of medium-sized tree fern, endemic to New Zealand. The fern is usually recognizable by the silver-white colour of the under-surface of mature fronds. Best in a sheltered site with shade or semi-shade and good moist soil is best.
