I'm a Dryopteris fan because

it looks like a fern should,

it likes limey soils,

it's hardy, 

and it's evergreen.

Thanks guys. Oh Kindred I have grown this fern in the open and in almost total shade and it seems to not mind

Looking very well!

I love the photo with the contrasting colours and shapes

Is that a snake bark maple growing near them, Martin ?

MartinB MartinB 11 January 2011 19:02:32

Nope Host. If on right it is  a Gleditsia

ladygardener ladygardener 25 January 2011 21:09:26

Have you any photos of the gleditsia? I've just planted two sunbursts.  They're meant to be very hardy have you found them so?

MartinB MartinB 25 January 2011 22:10:28

Hi lady just going to put up pic of sunbursts.
