Nephrolepis biserrata furcans
Stock Number: 14002
"Fishtail Fern" Large; frond tips fork into sections; this is a very large statured robust fern demanding a considerable space when mature--as tolerates full sun, now also a popular deck subject--but will take some time to achieve its full potential. Jones classifies this ornate cultivar as Nephrolepis falcata forma fu...

Nephrolepis cordifolia Buttons [garrettii]
Stock Number: 14009
"Tatting ribbon Fern" Small erect, then somewhat arched fronds with all pinnae reduced to rounded buttons along the rachis--larger statured than N.C. 'Duffii' with appearance of Pellaea rotundifolia. Also called 'Patty Roosevelt' even though, like all the cordifolia cultivars, this forms weird subsurface tubercules res...

Nephrolepis cordifolia Floral Fantasy
Stock Number: 14004
"Floral Fantasy Fern" Upright rachis sports monstrose and undulate pinnae. Rather tolerant of dry conditions, thus a handsome house plant for a vertical effect. Must have full sun to flourish and maintain its leathery rigidness--an thus not a successful house plant for most people. Very slow growing selection.

Nephrolepis cordifolia Handy
Stock Number: 11649
Very dark green mounding "Dwarf Petticoat Fern" with fronds closely ranked with glossy crinkly pinnae; when a frond reaches 6" to 8" it starts to crest by forking and reforking at the tips. Give this little forker good light and keep evenly moist. Excellent houseplant; fabulous conservatory showoff.

Nephrolepis exaltata aurea
Stock Number: 14014
"Golden Boston Fern" The heavy fronds are solid chartreuse yellow; makes a striking hanging basket subject; yet seems astoundingly similar to the golden variegated cultivar offered below in this listing of exaltata cultivars. Known as 'Delilah' in Australia & South America; as "Blond" in California.

Nephrolepis exaltata Fringed Vase
Stock Number: 14021
"Fringed Vase Boston" This can take a fair amount of sun. Very congested grower with many "fringed" ruffles all along the rachis of each frond.

Nephrolepis exaltata Pom Pon
Stock Number: 11653
"Pom Pon" could easily be called "The Cheerleaders' Fern"--but of course we will not stoop to such sorry humor! This is such a well behaved small statured Nephrolepis noted for each pinnae being quite rounded in outline that both growers and the public take to it instantly. The color is very consistenly a bright green ...

Nephrolepis exaltata Tri-Tiki
Stock Number: 14034

Stock Number: 11405
The true "Variegated Boston Fern" with long dramatic fronds, with the individual pinnae green, gold, or typically striped green and gold--remarkably beautiful, certainly rare.  Although a late Victorian selection, this has recently re-marketed this as "Tiger."

Nephrolepis exaltata Verona Lace
Stock Number: 14035
"Verona Lace Fern" Very finely cut, lacy Boston cultivar from the old Easterbrook collection.

Sometimes the...

Polypodium (phlebodium) aureum Blue Star
Stock Number: 10900
"Blue Star Bears' Paw" Broad loose and just modestly lobed erect fronds from white toned rhizomes. This is not the wild form seen in trees in the south and it is not the ruffled "Mandianum" type!

Selaginella krausiana Gold Tips
Stock Number: 11624

$4.00
Selaginella kraussiana aurea
Stock Number: 11412
"Golden Clubmoss" Short arching stems form bright mat; essential in any terrarium to brighten the design. While sometimes hard to distinguish from 'Gold Tips' in the summer, with winter temperatures and light intensities this tends to send out long 'fingers' of growth for a period mid-winter.

Stock Number: 11453
"Emerald Isle" or (although native to S. Africa) "Scotch Moss." Once again available for the new season.
