PercristatumPercristateAthyrium filix-feminaNone plumose, percristatums are not at all common, although Reginald Kaye mentions this cultivar and describes it as 'a strong growing variety'. He may well have acquired this when he obtained the ‘Whiteside’ collection.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
