I saw this Fern in several gardens during the Czech Conference garden visits. Can anyone please identify it?

You will probably find one growing out of old mortar, there are dozens on an old railway bridge not far from us.

Hmmmm but would it grow if I could find one that way Shelagh?  They do say they grow best in a wall, but they were looking good in gardens over there.  Wonder if it's the same one, my recollection is of silvery rather than bronze/brown reverse.

Ferns are interesting! I have quite a few in my garden as slugs seem to avoid them :-\

Here are some in their natural habitats:


Cryptogramma crispa in the shade of Athyrium distentifolium. Usually the Cryptogramma prefers more sun.

585545-0


Athyrium distentifolium

585547-1


Polystichum lonchitis

585549-2


A bad picture but it shows the typical habitat for Gymnocarpium dryopteris

585551-3


Not exactly a fern. Diphasiastrum complanatum ssp complanatum

585553-4

Maggi, you and Ian certainly have a lot of desirable weeds! And I mean both ferns and other plants  :)

As time goes on, Trond, I think the whole garden will be full of "volunteer" plants  - it suits us.  There comes a time when we just wants plants which can PROVE they want to live with us!

I also have some native ferns in the garden. Rusty back, maidenhair spleenwort, holly fern, mountain fern, oak fern, beech fern, hard shield fern, soft shield fern, marsh fern, royal fern, parsley fern, common polypody, hard fern, crested buckler, scaly male fern, green spleenwort and hay scented buckler. The habitats in my garden are not the usual ones for the species but they don,t seem to mind.

The above pic is upside down!

This particular wild colony lives under a limestone overhang in a prairie here in Minnesota.
