I don't know what to think about a fern that tricks me into thinking it is a grass... :-\

You think, 'Wow, that is sooo cool!' of course.

Any chance of A. septentrionale spores in the seedex soon?

Lis, still interested in spores?

BTW, here is a strange one I found:

Trond Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers  (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!

Tim, a belated response, but I do like the Woodsia species very much, must add some to the garden.

Adiantum pedatum is a joy to watch as the fronds unfurl, I love the pattern of airy filigree leaves as they first expand.

Hoy, your strange one looks more like Adiantum than Asplenium,  although no idea which one

Harold, I agree to that but no Adianum is native to Norway and the place I found them is very far from any garden.

Yes, very interested! Does your strange one show any signs of fruiting?

Lis, I have some spores now and two small plants also. Please PM me!The strange one had signs of sori but they looked rather empty. I'll keep an eye on it!

Mark, I have one small clump of A pedatum in my garden but wanted more! Now I have a big box full of prothalliums ;)

Ferns must be amongst the most beautiful plants as their fronds unfurl in spring - even in our relatively dry garden we are growing more and more. At the Chelsea Show every year the fern displays are like a green oasis amongst the sea of colour (especially, in the past, Rickard's stand) - perfect time to display them in mid-May. This is one of the Dryopteris unfurling under the apple trees in the garden. So different to the delicate beauty of the Adiantum.
