Re: Re: Athyrium nipponicum cultivars...

Kyle, I believe that you have two different cultivars of the same species, 
and as such, should be written:
Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum' 
Athyrium niponicum 'Apple Court'
Botanical name in italics, cultivar name not, but in single quotes.

Apparently the 'Apple Court' cultivar reveals soem cresting...but this may 
not be evident until mature. Niponicum is frequently misspelled nipponicum 
(it only has one p).

I hope this helps,
