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

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'.

Galium odoratum

£4.50 (2 or fewer items) £3.95 (3 or more items)

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
