Got these ferns from Shady Plants, Waterford at Blarney in Bloom last weekend.

One of the Japanese Painted Ferns is named "Godzilla" ! and grows to a width of 1.8 metres!

Clearly not the same as my Japanese Painted Fern, which refuses to grow more than 9-10". Rolling Eyes

There is a patch in our new garden where ferns grow very well. I'm going to have a collection there. Near to where we grew up there is a place known as The Fern Hills. I'm going to have a Fern 'Hill' to remind us of this lovely place. Smile

Yep, I have two of the normal painted ferns, which are small and two Godzillas, which are sterile.
