Shorter Note

Camptosorus sibiricus (from Siberia), Asian walking fern, synonym Asplenium ruprechtii, is from Japan, Korea, Manchuria, China, and eastern Siberia and although smaller is extremely similar to its North American counterpart. The frond base is tapered rather than heart-shaped and it is widest at the mid frond. This species hybridized with C. rhizophyllus quite by accident in an ohio greenhouse producing a fertile offspring, Asplenium crucibuli. Both are hardy in Zones 4 to 8 but vulnerable to slug and snail damage.
