For something really different, try a crested royal fern. The deciduous light green foliage resembles a regular royal fern, except for the ends of the leaves that resemble a three lobed club...probably designed for giving attitude adjustments to nearby misbehaving hostas. In spring, the upright vase shaped clumps are topped with fertile cinnamon spears.
