Vernoniae cristatumHeteromorphicAthyrium filix-feminaA crested Vernoniae was sent to Mr. Clapham of Scarborouh, alsmost certainly accidentally by Messrs. Stansfield of Todmorden. Fortunately it tends to come true from 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
