(syn: Phyllitis scolopendrium) This bizarre little fern would make Mick Jagger proud with leaves that look like a 1' long shiny green toungue sticking out of the ground. Imaging several of these in a small clump and you have a good picture of the Hart's tongue fern. This limestone loving fern appreciates a well drained slightly moist soil. Many winter losses are due to poorly drained sites, not cold weather.
