Acystopteris taiwaniana (new)

A particularly rare fern from the mountains of Taiwan, producing very finely divided light green tripinnate deciduous fronds to 30cm tall from a gently running rootstock. This should have a good hardiness and is suited to friable humus rich soil in shade

Anemia mexicana (new)

A most unusual fern, from Mexico believe it or not. Known as the Flowering fern for some reason, probably because the totally green fertile fronds rise vertically through the pinnatifid, evergreen, sterile fronds in a somewhat flowery way, though they don't look remotely like flowers, per se. I've seen this in NE Mexico on well drained rather dry sites.

Arachniodes davalliaeformis (new)

From the Southern Japanese islands comes this unusual species with very thick textured, though lacy, dark green fronds to 60cm tall. These are seemingly made of plastic and quite stiffly held, offering a most unusual look in the shade garden. For a sheltered and semi-shaded position in leafy soil, not too wet. Should be hardy across most of the UK.

Arachniodes standishii (new)

The 'upside-down fern' from Japan and Korea has semi-evergreen, tripinnate, ovate, pale green fronds rather different from most in the genus, which reach up to 90cm. It also has the rather funky appearance of the fronds being upside down, which they are, of course, not. An unusual but hardy and easy fern for a humid semi-shade position in leafy soil.

Athyrium filix-femina 'Dre's Dagger' (new)

A sport from the famous 'Victoriae' and resembling it in many ways, this has the fronds reduced to very narrow pinnae, held at a sharp angle to the rachis and usually criss-crossing each other in a three dimensional X; each frond and each pinnae ending with a crested tip. A much dwarfer form, to about 45cm. Easy in leafy shade to semi-shade.
