Tatting Fern (Athyrium filix-femina 'Frizelliae')

10.00

One of the most charming and recognizable lady fern finds with its unique fan-shaped pinnae flared out less than 1/2 inch on either side of the rachis. Mrs. Frizell found it on her property in Ireland in 1857 where “It grew between two boulders so fast and with so little soil, that it was with great difficulty my husband removed it." These sporlings seem to be some of the best progeny I have seen of this form from spore as many irregular plants are often produced in spore lots. I can't guarantee perfection from every plant, and I have seen a few indications of apical cresting, but for the most part there seem to be no major breaks out of character. Tissue cultured plants also have the same tendency to break form so look for a plant that is consistent in character.
