Dryopteris tokyoensis

To swap with Alison Clark

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Stays lime green and very upright. OK in early or late sun (haven't tried it in full sun, but Dryopteris usually pretty drought resistant). Very special, so would need to swap for something equally rare!

    Particularly like good leaves and already have an extensive collection of ferns. I'm trying to get Geranium Bill Wallis to establish as a weed because it is so pretty and its colour enhances most other plants
