Dragontail Fern or Scott's Spleenwort Fern (Asplenium x ebenoides [Asplenosorus x ebenoides])

10.00

This curious cross of A. platyneuron with A. rhizophyllum is less tasty to voracious slugs than its second parent.  The highly variable fronds are cut in bizarre patterns of assorted shaped and sized lobes with the apex sometimes trailing to the ground and rooting.  Its long, narrow fronds with elongated tips conjure up a certain chaotic whimsicality, much like having a patch of green spiky dragon tails in the garden.
