Is this the plant from Duffy’s Swamp?
No, this is the plant that Art Gilman showed us.
Beautiful hybrid! Very rare in nature, I presume. By the way, do you know if David still has copies of “Henry Potter’s field guide to the hybrid ferns of NE”? I would like to buy one…
They are available from the Tryon Pteridophyte Library http://www.uvm.edu/~plantbio/pringle/Libraries.html
Thanks for the link! I will buy it tonight. That website is amazing, btw… I loved that photo of the Tryons in their early days. I also enjoyed reading about Cyrus Pringle (what a beard!) and the profiles of important collections at VT.
