Re: Re: crocodyllus

I see the web site attributes it to north Queensland (Australia) rainforest - a little bit of creative advertising, I think, as the fern is neither native nor as far as I know (in my capacity as curator of ferns at Queensland Herbarium) naturalized in Australia.

Less experienced gardeners may not know the difference, and it gets their attention, as it once did mine!  Of course they are still good cultivars, so I guess it is a small deception.
