    I agree, but is there a real horticultural, proper, probably Latin name for this gorgeous fern?????????

    Fantastic, thank you very much for your help. Felicity is honoured with a name like that.

    I once tried to understand fern reproduction. I got as far as 'The diploid sporophyte produces haploid spores by meiosis' and decided that ferns can be whatever gender they like and I'll just leave them to it. :#

    You're just soooooooooooooooooo sexist.
    No reason why a boy can't be called Felicity, it's 2019 for goodness sake. Catch up.

    Coincidence...someone must have started to propagate these unusual ferns.

    Doryopteris was the one I id a short while ago...a different Doryopteris from one above.
