So, ol' Hart liked it both ways...straight and with a petticoat...what a kinky dude. Back in the English Victorian era, European hardy fern collectors named several hundred crested varieties of Hart's-tongue, but only a few remain in cultivation today. Asplenium scolopendrium 'Cristatum' is a selection of the European form of Asplenium scolopendrium that makes a tight rosette of 1' long, shiny, evergreen tongue-like leaves, each ending in a crested petticoat. Remember that moist, well-drained soil and a pH toward 7.0 will help to ensure success...both in the ground and as a houseplant.
