Parts of the frond Asplenium scolopendrium 'Cristatum'.

Asplenium scolopendrium 'Cristatum' is a perennial fern, a relic of the Tertiary period. Asplenium scolopendrium 'Cristatum' (height 40-60 cm), has a short rhizome covered with scales at the top. The shape of this fern is unusual - it resembles a vase with frills.
Leaves are whole, glabrous, leathery, dark green, which is unique among ferns, their width is 3-6 cm, length - 40-60 cm. Cuttings are shorter than the leaf blade.
On the lower surface of the leaves, along the lateral veins, sori are parallel to each other, covered with two veins. Their arrangement resembles the legs of a centipede, hence the specific name of the plant scolopendrium ("centipede").
Asplenium scolopendrium is widespread in Europe from southeastern Sweden to the Mediterranean, as well as in northern North America and Asia. A very rare species everywhere.
Easy to grow partially in full shade in moist, free-draining soil. The species is frost-resistant.
