Adiantum aleuticum 'Subpumilum' Adiantum aleuticum var. subpumilum

Ultra-choice dwarf form of our Western Maidenhair fern that is currently known from just a few coastal cliff sites on Vancouver Island and historically on the Olympic Peninsula.  Short black stems hold dense perfection of classic maidenhair leaves on plants not exceeding 8" in height.  These are established divisions from our plants originating from the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden.

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.

Asplenium scolopendrium 'Undulata' Asplenium scolopendrium 'Undulata'

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 growiing with bricks and will self-sow in the moss on shaded moist concrete or rock walls.

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 filix-femina 'Frizelliae' Athyrium filix-femina 'Frizelliae'

Tatting Fern.  Perfect for you all lace-makers out there as the very narrow fronds resemble tatted lace.  I have to say I don't know anyone who tats lace anymore.  Tattoos yes but lace, no.  Delicate and intricate texture with 12"-18" long fronds.  Deciduous,  moist & bright shade.

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 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.

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. MD2506 Lepisorus sp. MD06-256

Our collection in Mogecuo, Sichuan found growing in thick moss atop a large boulder shaded by Rhododendron bureavioides.  Pretty sure on the genus and obviously floundering on the species.  The genus has undergone recent revision and names may not yet be finalized.  Hardy for us and decidous.

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.

Phlebodium aureum - Peckerwood Form Phlebodium aureum - Peckerwood Form

A hardier form of this species than is currently found in the trade, this is one of the many notable wild collections at the former Peckerwood Garden, now the John Fairey Garden.  Awesome blue-green foliage to 3' with hairy surface rhizomes.  This will work as a houseplant but if you can grow it outside, why not?  Grow in airy well-drained soil and mulch in cold winters.

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.

Polystichum polyblepharum Polystichum polyblepharum

Japanese Tassel Fern.  One of the really excellent evergreen ferns providing a delicately classic lacy fern texture in a well-mannered clumping habit.  New growth is softly fuzzy.  This is a no fuss no muss woodlander which asks for little except a good drink now and then.

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 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.

Pteris wallichiana Pteris wallichiana

This was one of those "Holy shit - lookit that fern!" moments when we first spotted this species growing at the base of soaring pinnacles of vertical peaks in Guizhou, China where it was not intimidated in the least and perfectly in scale.  Massive 4'-6' wide fronds 6'-8' tall in the wild and clumping.  Likely smaller in cultivation but still BIG!  Zone 7b-9.

Woodwardia unigemmata Woodwardia unigemmata

A most impressive fern and one we've been privileged to see in its native haunts in China.  This makes magnificent large long fronds, coppery when young and when mature, terminating in a single fuzzy small ball or gemma, which will become a new fern.
