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).
