Adiantum venustum Adiantum venustum

Himalayan Maidenhair Fern.  Evergreen to semi-evergreen creeping fern making the the most textural groundcover imaginable.   Salmon pink new growth goes to light olive and finally green leaflets on black wiry stems just 8"-12" high.  Likes a loose moist soil but will tolerate dry when established.

Adiantum x tracyi Adiantum x tracyi

A fine evergreen Maidenhair Fern from a naturally occurring hybrid between Adiantum aleuticum and A. jordanii.  These are a different clone than the "original clone" and no less desireable with the same fine and wholesome attributes.  Maidenhairs have always been one of the quintessential ferns in our estimation and this is a choice one.

Anisocampium niponicum var. pictum 'Metallicum'  syn. Athyrium Anisocampium niponicum var. pictum 'Metallicum' syn. Athyrium

Metallic silver overlay to the fronds accented by reddish stipe and rachis.  This is simply a good colored strain of the Japanese Painted Fern and we'll retain the "Metallicum' for just that reason. And because as this is being typed, the office man-cave is rocking to the remastered 2016 release of Apocalyptica Plays Metallica By Four Cellos with the iPhone concert lighter app going.

Arachniodes simplicior 'Variegata' Arachniodes simplicior 'Variegata'

Shiny Japanese Holly Fern.  Ok, we made that up but it is pretty close.  Really fine fern which has few rivals in the "Best Shiny Leaf in Cool Ferns" category..  Stiff, waxy, glossy nearly plasticized evergreen foliage is accented by soft yellow patterns.  This is a great plant for the shade garden and easy - you don't have to be Ciscoe to grow this well.

Asplenium scolopendrium 'Angustatum' Asplenium scolopendrium 'Angustatum'

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 and would be well suited to an artist's garden.

Asplenium trichomanes Asplenium trichomanes

Maidenhair Spleenwort.  I love common names.  I 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 I can just grow it in a gritty well-drained shaded rock garden and enjoy its evergreen delicacy.

Athyrium 'Ghost' Athyrium 'Ghost'

This sterile deciduous clumper is a cross between the American Lady Fern and the Japanese Painted Fern.  Ghostly gray-green fronds to 3' long shimmers in the shade garden especially when deployed against a dark background.  Hardy as all get out and easy - just not too dry.

Athyrium 'Godzilla' Athyrium 'Godzilla'

Really great fern that was a chance sporeling at Plant Delights Nursery and once they saw it towering over all of the other Japanese Painted ferns at 3' tall and 6' across, they thought it worthy of naming. Who knew Tony loved those old Japanese Godzilla B movies so much? Wonderful focal point of silver in the shade.  Deciduous and deer resistant.

Athyrium niponicum 'Regal Red' Athyrium niponicum 'Regal Red'

Fantastic selection of the Japanese Painted Fern with silvery fronds with slightly curved pinnae and interiors vividly marked in purple and burgundy.  Taking a page from Neil Young's lyrics that it is better to burn out than fade away, this is ablaze all summer and deciduous in winter.

Blechnum chilense Blechnum chilense

One of those dramatic ferns which cannot help itself from stealing the spotlight. This spreading Chilean relative to our Deer Fern loves a rich, moist spot where it makes a colony displaying its awesome-by-anyone's-definition leaves. Leaves, which in the endless buffet of nutrient-laden compost and with ample water, can reach 4'-5' tall.  Evergreen except in hard winters.

Blechnum penna-marina ssp. penna-marina Blechnum penna-marina ssp. penna-marina

This a bigger version of the little B. penna-marina ssp. alpina commonly found in nurseries.  We never see this offered which is just a shame since it is a great fern.  Well, not such a shame since a little exclusivity never hurts.  This makes a dense groundcover of evergreen foliage.

Cyrtomium macrophyllum cf. MD 12-21 Cyrtomium macrophyllum cf. MD 12-21

Our collection from a previously unbotanized remnant old-growrth forest in China.  It was like walking in a mountain valley in Appalachia with massive Beech, Chestnuts, Hornbeams, Magnolias and Rhododendrons all hundreds of years old.  Just writing this - it is like we're there.  Good evergreen fern - guessing on species.

Deparia lobato-crenata Deparia lobato-crenata

Another one of those hyphenated names which pique our interest no doubt due to some character defect on our part but there is nothing defective about this Japanese gem. Glossy evergreen leaves are evocative of Blechnum which is high praise in our book.  Gently, almost apologetically creeps to form a congenial aggregation of crowns

Dryopteris championii Dryopteris championii

Champion's Fern.  Named for an English botanist who collected in Hong Kong, this grows in dry woods of China, Japan and one would suspect, the mountains of Hong Kong.  Evergreen with bright apple-green new fronds, this is certainly a champion among ferns combining beauty with resilience.

Dryopteris cycadina Dryopteris cycadina

Shaggy Shield Fern.  This evergreen to semi-evergreen fern has a stellar vase-shaped habit with good dark green leaflets which contrast with the black scales on the stipe and rachis which is just  Pterid-talk for stem below the leaves and stem with the leaves.  Coldest part of its zonal range might precipitate a loss of fronds but it will be fine.  A bold and classic appearance for containers or the shaded garden where it is going to do best in moist to moderately moist soil.

Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance'

Autumn Fern.  There's common names for you. Don't expect fireworks in the fall from this one because you get them all spring and summer with the new fronds unfurling a pinky coppery red before they age to the expected green.  Very showy and one of the best evergreen ferns.

Dryopteris pulcherrima Dryopteris pulcherrima

Newly introduced evergreen fern from China which we hope to see fall of 2015 when we go plant hunting in its native Anhui.  The species epithet "pulcherimma" means "Beautiful" in Latin although this was named by a taxonomist so it could mean it has gorgeous scales on the rachis under magnification.  It is pretty and very heat tolerant.

Dryopteris tokyoensis Dryopteris tokyoensis

Tokyo Wood Fern.  Classy deciduous species from Japan and Korea with good garden manners.  A necessary fern if you are a ferner and we are so we had to have it - more than one truth be told.  Deer and rabbit resistant which is critical in our garden.  We need to move the couch from the living room out to the garden at night so the dogs can send the vermin herbivores packing.

Lepisorus bicolor Lepisorus bicolor

Pretty awesome evergreen fern because not only is it cool but it increases fast enough to make a statement in the garden before you are in your dotage and have forgotten why you bought this yet not in that rampaging acreage-eating Borg-assimilating manner that is sometimes described as "a good nursery plant".

Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21 Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  This is an interesting fern of which we have just a few nice divisions.  This grows as an epiphyte on tree trunks which is typical for the genus and was found at the high point in the mountain range so should have some hardiness. The distinctive large rounded paired sori on the backs of the leaves also fit the genus.

Osmunda regalis var. spectabilis Osmunda regalis var. spectabilis

North American Royal Fern.  Native to the eastern half of North America, this deciduous fern can develop a short but substantial trunk with age that is quite intriguing in the garden.  Nice pinnate fronds can reach 3 feet in length and the spore clusters add some pizzazz.  This can take very wet soils which makes a great bog or pond edge plant and the wetter it is, the more sun it can handle but will also do well in deep shade.  Flora of North America recognizes this variety as being distinct from the European Osmunda regalis while some authorities regard this as simply O. regalis while others have elevated it to specific status as Osmunda spectabilis based on recent molecular work. Just some frondly disagreements.

Polypodiaceae MD15-09 Polypodiaceae MD15-09

Fern fans we are, fern experts we are not, but we continue to chip away at the imposing taxonomic massif of Pteridphyta in hopes of becoming somewhat conversational in Fern. Currently, we can ask the equivalent of where the restroom is and order beer when talking Asian ferns. This is a creeping fern with long, thin rhizomes ideally suited for weaving through shallow moss on shaded rock faces with small orbicular-ovate evergreen leaves.

Polypodium glycyrrhiza 'Longicaudatum' Polypodium glycyrrhiza 'Longicaudatum'

Licorice Fern.  This is the Award of Garden Merit form of the species which has a superior presentation in its fronds which are blessed with a long terminal pinnae.  And really, who doesn't want a long terminal pinnae?  The typical species is a familiar sight growing on the trunks of our native Bigleaf Maples here in western Washington but this form is rare.

Polystichum mayebarae Polystichum mayebarae

Fine evergreen fern from China, Korea and Japan which in this form is larger than typical for the species at least as far as this species is represented in cultivation.  We previously offered this as P. mayabarae - fern taxonomy can make you lose sleep.  A very nice and clean evergreen fern which has been tolerant of dry shade.

Polystichum neolobatum - Alpine Form Polystichum neolobatum - Alpine Form

If you are looking for a tough evergreen fern that will hold up in the winter then look no further.  This handsome Asian fern looks great all year and in contrast to our native Western Sword Fern, the fronds don't get flattened by the snow in winter.  This will get a couple feet high or more.

Polystichum retrosopaleaceum Polystichum retrosopaleaceum

This Japanese-Chinese-Korean species is the embodiment of an evergreen fern whose classic presentation is imbued with Samurai reserve and enlivened only by the amber scales on the stipe whose meaning of such ornament goes back thousands of years and which our inadequate Western minds cannot begin to grasp beyond that it's real purty.

Polystichum setiferum 'Pulcherrimum Bevis' Polystichum setiferum 'Pulcherrimum Bevis'

An especially fine form of the Soft Shield Fern found wild in England during the Victorian era when fern collecting was a form of madness.  Narrow evergreen 3' fronds with thin finely cut pinnae embodies elegance.  This is the perfect container plant for your mega yacht under the awning on the fantail, pairing well with your lazing insouciant Afghan hounds.

Polystichum setiferum Divisilobum Group Polystichum setiferum Divisilobum Group

Soft Shield Fern.  This Divisilobum Group is an aggregate of similarly very finely dissected leaflet that gives this the softest appearance and feel.  It really should be grown in a tall chimney pot so that one could simply bend the head and slowly nuzzle the foliage while the cares of the day trickle away.

Polystichum setiferum Plumosomultilobum Group Polystichum setiferum Plumosomultilobum Group

Semi-evergreen fern with orderly ranks of slanted puckered and feathery pinnae which are the leaflets. Such foliar intricacy challenges Latin scientific description and has left more than one botanist mumbling incoherently and changing careers to become a long-haul trucker or didgeridoo busker.  Hard to beat for that lacy delicate look in the shade garden and this takes dry conditions surprisingly well once established.

Polystichum x dycei Polystichum x dycei

Dyce's Hybrid Fern.  Named for Jimmy Dyce, one of the UK's late great fern guys, this is an outstanding garden plant.  Vigorous and long fronds from 3'-4' long.  These make a broadly spreading semi-evergreen vase and during spring and summer takes a backseat to no fern.
