Adiantum raddianum 'Scutum Roseum'

12th September 2006

Another one where the name is rather suspect. There are a number of similar named forms in cultivation, with pinkish new growth. In the early 1980's I was employed to grow them commercially, and even then, although we were calling it 'Scutum Roseum', we were actually producing a numbered selection that had been mass produced by tissue culture in Denmark. I am happy to call this 'Scutum Roseum' it is probably just an anonymous numbered form, mass produced who-knows where.
