I recently bought a fern labelled as Polystichum polyblepharum 'Jade'.
I can hardly believe it because this fern is quite different.
The blade is narrow and linear, very leathery.
Once-pinnate to pinnate-pinnatifid.
The lower pinnae, bipinnate, point strongly downwards.
Very glossy and deep green, spinulose, looking like a holly leaf.
Many thanks for your help.

the blades of Polystichum polyblepharum are lanceolate not linear. This is right. May be it is possible that the variety 'Jade' shows linear blades and overlapping pinnae? I never heard about a variety with the name 'Jade'.

Mostly the blades of the varieties are very different to the normaly species. But it is also possible the photo shows a different species. I think the genus Polystichum is allright.

Thank you Athyriana for your help.
One thing is for sure, it is a Polystichum.
I put aside the label, this fern was producted in Holland and Polystichum polyblepharum Jade is a registered mark.
On the back of the label is written : for more information visit http://www.xtrr.nl/
For the moment there is no information :lol:
Best regards.

I have the type species of this fern in my garden,it is a very nice fern with dark,hard,shiny fronds that look a bit like the leaves of Berberis. Not heard of the cultivar Jade before thoug.
