Adiantum venustum

Adiantum venustum

Anemia mexicana

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

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 simplicior (syn. A. aristata 'Variegata') (new)

A particularly handsome evergreen Asian species with broadly triangular, bipinnate, dagger-like hard textured fronds; deep green and glossy with prominent yellow markings along the midribs and therefore naturally variegated. An elegant beauty for semi-shade where it will make a gently moving colony on spreading rhizomes. Beware slugs when fronds are young. Hardy.

Arachniodes standishii

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 'Ghost'

Athyrium 'Ghost'

Very different to anything else, even the greyer forms of A. nipponicum, this truly unique fern has uniformly very pale grey fronds with darker stipes. Fronds are regularly and delicately divided and rise in a rather upright fashion to 60cm. A hybrid between the 'painted' and 'lady' ferns. A wonderful contrast to greener things. For semi-shade.

Athyrium nipponicum var. pictum 'Silver Falls'

A newish form of the Japanese painted fern with lovely, subtly marked fronds, mainly in ghostly silver-grey but also with a good wash of deep red up the middle. Best in a semi-shaded site in leafy soil, not too dry, where it will spread slowly. Height 35cm.
