Scaly Buckler Fern (Dryopteris remota)

8.00

The widely arching fronds inherit their fine lacy dissection from expansa and broad lance-shaped outline with tawny scales from affinis. The fronds lie in a single plane and arch gracefully in a somewhat horizontal manner. From its affinis parent it has the ability to successful self-sow and colonize in suitable conditions. This fern has performed exceptionally well in areas with climatic extremes from winter cold to summer heat. The spore for this US introduction came to me via the British Pteridological Society spore exchange as a European collection. I listed this in my 1985 catalog and it has proven to be another stalwart garden treasure.
