#Florespondence: Osmunda regalis 'Purpurascens'

It's quite possible that this, Osmunda regalis 'Purpurascens', also known as the 'royal fern', is my favourite fern. It's certainly regal. It's utterly enchanting, from the moment it sends up its fronds and begins to unfurl.









It's in a bed close to the dining room doors, so I have watched it develop morning by morning throughout Spring, whilst eating breakfast. Quite a show.

Yes, this is my favourite fern.
