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'.

Alchemilla mollis AGM

Alchemilla mollis AGM

5.25 (2 or fewer items) 4.80 (3 or more items)

Common as muck but brilliant for a tough spot. Plumes of lime green/yellow flowers in Summer. Wonderful for flower arranging and the leaves look magical with water droplets sitting on them. Very dry shade tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits, plus the occasional football or foot.

Often used at the front of borders and complementing other flowering perennials (it looks stunning when planted with Geranium 'Rozanne'), Alchemilla can also be used most effectively to create an area of differing foliage colours and textures - it combines beautifully with small to medium sized ferns.

It will mildly seed around but it is just too useful to ignore! Cutting foliage and faded flower stems back in mid/late summer will produce a second flush of leaves and the odd flower.
