The name given Pteris ferns is descriptive of only part of them, as
they vary greatly. They are commonly used in made up dishes, or with
other plants, but most of them will make fine single plants as well. P.
Wilsoni is a popular sort making a compact plant with a unique tufted
foliage of light clear green. P. cretica is dark green, or green lined
with white, according to the variety. Victoriae is perhaps the best of
the several variegated Pteris'.
