Cyathea cooperi

Cyathea cooperi is a medium-to-large fast growing tree fern, to 15 metres (49 ft) in height with a 12-inch (30 cm) thick trunk. The apex of the trunk and unfurling crosiers are particularly attractive, covered as they are with conspicuous long, silky, straw colored scales. The crown is widely spread and the light green fronds may reach a length of 4–6 metres (13–20 ft).

Never tire of ferns. Never cease to be inspired by these furled fronds of new growth.

Beautiful picture, I have lusted after a cyathea for a while now - how hardy is this one?
