FibrexCruciateAthyrium filix-feminaFibrex is a beautiful, foliose form of Fieldiae, and was found in a batch of sporlings at Fibrex nurseries in the mid 1980s. It is vigorous and produces crowns readily. Produces abortive sporangium and occasionally spore.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
