Plumosum PennyPlumoseAthyrium filix-feminaVery little is known about Mr. Penny of Lancaster or his breeding of Plumosum Penny other than he raised the cultivar from the spore of plumosum Horsfall.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
