Hey John....
  I remember that alot of the cultivars looked
identical and these days dont see alot of them around
any more..
They've kind of fallen out of favor here in maine as
their so slow to break dormancy as you probably well
know and after these past two winters with so many
garden losses the athyrium nipponicum's have moved to
the bottom of the want list even after being a
perennial plant of the year...
