A narrow leafed version of the classic Hart's Tongue fern from Europe. We've seen the typical species happily growing in English hedgerows and closer to home, naturalizing on a shaded mossy brick wall at June Sinclair's garden. This form is quite striking with it's stiff, evergreen lance-shaped leaves tightly rippled and crimped on the margins and would be well suited to an artist's garden.

Crested Hart's Tongue Fern. Crested ferns are always fun and this one does provide some amusement in the garden. Rather than the typical evergreen, entire sword-shaped leaves which taper to a point, these crested forms splay out at the end into a rounded and ruffled flourish which might mark this as a self-indulgent dandy were it not for its complete absence of ego. More than happy to play a necessary supporting role to those blooming Trilliums for example. Doesn't mind a bit of lime and will self-spore in mortared walls.

We don't know about you but personally speaking, furcate leaves really floats our boat. Fancy way of saying divided into two parts but we tend to think of this form of the Hart's Tongue Fern as having antlered leaves because if the regular form can have leaves like a deer's tongue, why not leaves like antlers in this form? Evergreen and rabbit resistant and will handle happily some lime in the soil although it does fine in neutral to low acidic.

Hart's Tongue Fern. Choice selection of this European native evergreen fern which has variable wavy and rumpled leaf margins. This doesn't mind a bit of lime in the soil and is very happy growing with bricks and will self-sow in the moss on shaded moist concrete or rock walls.

This a great form of the Hart's Tongue fern which always elicits comments in our shade garden. Positive comments, in case you were wondering if we were practicing the Art of Deceptive Honesty. Narrow evergreen leaves finely crimped and crinkled on the margins moves this from Plant into Sculpture.

Maidenhair Spleenwort. We love common names. We must dig out our 15th century Herbal and read up on how to properly decoct this sweet little fern for afflicting humors of the spleen. Or we can just grow it in a gritty well-drained shaded rock garden and enjoy its evergreen delicate appearance which belies its rugged constitution. This little fern grows throughout the northern part of the northern hemisphere and just has a small foothold in our North Cascades. One of our favorite sights of this fern was when we did the Coast to Coast walk in northern England in the epic rainy summer of 2012 and we walked close to 200 miles through the Lakes District and Yorkshire Dales and Moors. We saw this growing everywhere naturalized on old stone walls, stone bridges and stone buildings. Very attractive and a clue to its drainage preferences.

It is unthinkable that any improvement could be made on the classic lines and refined presentation that is the stock and bond of typical Maidenhair Spleenwort but as is so often the case in our waning years, we are confronted by contradictions to our comfortable precepts. In this case, WOOHOO! The tip of each frond is intricately crested taking simple perfection and adding an unexpected layer of complexity. Evergreen and easy, this requires good drainage and light to bright shade.

Dragontail Fern. This natural hybrid is the result of some hanky-panky out in the woods between two eastern US species, Asplenium rhizophyllum and A. platyneuron. The result is a fine amalgamation of the good traits of both parents bringing forward the nice pinnae and dark stipe or stem of rhizophyllum with the slim and elegantly tailored leaf blade of platyneuron. In the wild, this is often found growing on rocks cloaked in the mossy duff of accumulated organic matter and you could replicate this at home provided you have shaded rocks decked out in duff. Or just plant this bit of pretty in soil with good drainage.
