Fern Godzilla

$15.95

New! This sporeling showed up in our garden in the mid-1990s and it wasn’t long before we realized we had something special.  There was something about its new size in height and wide proportions that were a bit out of the ordinary for a typical Japanese painted fern, despite its typical painted fern leaf appearance.  Although the leaf backs were covered in patches of felty brown spores there was no viability, indicating some horticultural hanky panky with a nearby lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina) had conceived this “mule.”  Zone 5
