  1. Ferns also seem to care very little about light, grow so well in shaded areas. Posted 15 days ago
    1. Yes, this tree, an elm, fell over our beck (river) about 5 years ago and the ferns that were on the trunk just love it. Posted 15 days ago

''Polypodium vulgare'', the common polypody, is a fern of the family Polypodiaceae. ''Polypodium vulgare'' is an allotetraploid species, believed to have arisen by chromosome doubling of a sterile diploid hybrid between two ferns which are not known in Europe.
