Polypodium glycyrrhiza 'Longicaudatum'
11th June 2012
An American species from the Pacific Northwest, the rhizomes taste of licorice though I have never tried it.
Perhaps when it becomes an invasive pest I will give it a try.
In 'Longicaudatum' the tip of the frond extends into a long ribbon. I'm sure it droops delicately in a large clump. My plant looks
like my pastry, rolled too thin and ragged at the edges. It will improve I am sure (not the pastry I'm afraid, that
has always been beyond hope).
