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.
A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. Our collection from Asia of this evergreen fern we might refer to as Pyrrosia lingua but given the number of Pyrrosia recognized currently in Asia, we are allowing that we might be Clueless in Port Townsend as to the species! This formed an impressive colony on the duff overlaying a partly shaded large rock slab. Vigorous!
This choice evergreen Tongue Fern is notable for the yellowish variegation on its evergreen 12" long leaves and is likely conspecific with the clone sold as 'Variegata', Pyrrosia are easy but require great drainage and unless you are planting it in a stumpery, rockery or slope, you will need to seriously amend with gravel, bark or assorted detritus of life.
Tongue Ferns are widespread in China and Japan where they can be epiphytic as well as lithophytic on rocks. Fantastic variants are being selected by the cult followers of Pyrrosia in Japan and "Tachiba Koryu' is one with evergreen blade-like leaves sporting rounded lobes along the margins. Does fantastic at Peckerwood Gardens near Houston.
Collected in Taiwan by gifted plantsman Steve Doonan, this amazing Fern is hardy to at least single digits. This is a locally famous fern frustratingly slow to propagate and always red-lining the Plant Lust meter. We've cornered the market so get 'em while you can! Easy in morning sun/shade.
