Polypodium vulgare - 2-3Ltr pot
Polypodium vulgare is an evergreen fern that grows from a furry rhizome that creeps slowly along the soil surface. The fronds are simply pinnate and triangular in outline - the leaflets getting progressively smaller towards the point. The common polypody is a remarkably adaptable fern and can be seen luxuriating gigantically in acidic leaf mold, diminutively clinging to rocks and dry-stone walls or gripping trees branches epiphytically. The rhizome slowly creeps along wherever it can get a purchase, tolerating extreme drought once established. Plant is evergreen, new growth is often very late in the year.
