Our strikingly beautiful cover item, Paris polyphylla, deserves its prominence. The name stems from the parity of its symmetrical, mandala-like, layered pattern of leaves, sepals, petals, and stamens. Fruit appears like a perfect egg in the center-an exquisite effect. Just as remarkable is Paris polyphylla’s hardiness, from zones 5 to 8 in partial or full shade and moist and retentive soil.In fact, a whole raft of widely adapted “newbies” joins our regular assortment, such as our second catalogue cover item, Adiantum pedatum, a rare new selection of American Maidenhair Fern that thrives in part shade in zones 3 to 8.
