Diplazium australe (new)

The 'Austral Lady Fern' hails from Eastern Australia, New Zealand and Lord Howe Island and is a close relative of Athyrium. A medium to large fern, this remains elegant with finely divided tripinnate fronds to 70cm. Easily grown in shade to semi-shade in moist leafy soil, this rarity should be hardy in all but the very coldest inland northern pats of the UK.

Diplazium dilatatum (new)

A splendid, exotic looking medium to large fern from Southern Asia to Australia, this rarity warrants a sheltered position until its hardiness is proven, or pot culture. Bipinnate evergreen fronds up to 3m tall from a trunk to 50cm in habitat, though no doubt smaller here unless you garden in a west coast woodland.

Diplazium hachijoense (new)

An exotic looking rarity from Japan, though this has proved its hardiness over many years in a cold part of Central England. Large evergreen bipinnate fronds to 90cm arch over and make semi-horizontal layers of handsome foliage from a gently creeping dark rhizome. Non-invasive, but give this one some space to shine, in a shaded leafy spot.

Dryopteris wallichiana

A striking fern on account of the dark unfurling fronds. The effect is produced by the black or brown scales on the stalk which travel right up the underside of the frond. Fronds can reach up to 120cm and are rich green, long-lance-shaped and divided into many narrow pinnae. Good humusy soil in semi-shade.
