Asplenium - Harts Tongue Ferns

A lovely collection of easy tolerant ferns with a wonderous assortment of fronds. Named by Pliny and Dioscorides around AD60 because of the ferns' potential to treat disorders of the spleen and liver ...not something we would encourage customers to do!

Asplenium x ebenoides AGM

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 15cm (6in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: N/A to N/A

Rarely seen, but a naturally occurring hybrid of Asplenium platyneuron and the Walking Fern, Camptosorus (Asplenium) rhizophyllus. Very rarely available commercially, from the eastern United States. Occasionally producing plantlets at the tips of the fronds, it does best in an alkaline to neutral moist soil, but beware slugs and snails. Makes a good subject for a pot in a shady alpine house or in a sink or trough. Has the great common name of 'Dragon's Tooth Fern'.
