Plumosum percristatumPlumoseAthyrium filix-feminaCharles Druery was the first to discuss plumosum percristatum in connection with his ‘superbum’ range which he bred in 1886. This magnificent plant is now sadly long lost but other p. percristatums have come along in the intervening years.Generally as for species. Will grow in most soils but prefers acid conditions; as someone says in good 'woodland duff'. Also best in light shade but will tolerate some sun in the morning and evening, or more if in damp conditions. Protect from strong winds which would damage the fronds.Ian Unsworth
