Athyrium filix-femina 'Frizelliae'
12th September 2006
Tatting is a kind of knotted lace made with sewing thread, and presumably Mrs.Frizell (in whose garden in Ireland this plant was found in 1857) tatted? (Tattinged ?)
It is a good name - my grandmother had a faded green sofa trimmed with tat exactly like these leaves, possibly a touch more golden green.
