Western Sword Fern. These were spore-grown here so about as Port Townsend local as you can get! One of the truly great ferns and a memorable sight in Northwest forests where old-growth ferns easily reach 4' or more tall. Evergreen with a broadly vase-shaped habit, the fronds are used extensively in the floral industry. Tolerant of sun, rocks in light shade.
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.
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.
