Lophosoria quadripinnata.

Lophosoria quadripinnata.

Well not a 'Buy', but being in the right place and the right time. I was lucky enough to be given a fern Lophosoria quadripinnata. It has a beautiful large fronds and the underside is grey. It has grown very well with all the rain this summer.

I remember you posted about this plant when you got it, Mary; it certainly has come on well and looks lovely in that corner.
