Asplenium nidus 'Chrissy'
A crested birdnest fern. This is a fantastic, crested form of this widely distributed tropical Asian fern. Growing to 30 inches across in some cases, with wide, apple-green fronds with a prominent midrib that becomes darker, almost black, in older plants. This form has crested leaves that end in deeply cut, finger like serrations. Outstandingly decorative and versatile as a garden subject, houseplant or terrarium plant. A choice new variety.
Asplenium nidus 'Leslie'
A remarkably crested form of birdnest fern. A very full growing plant to about 18 inches across with wide, apple-green fronds with a prominent midrib that becomes darker in older plants. This form has crested leaves that end in deeply cut, finger like serrations. Outstandingly decorative with a ruffled appearance. Versitile as a garden subject, houseplant or terrarium plant. A choice new variety. Similar to but even more spectacularly crested than ‘Chrissy‘.
