The Sword Ferns

The old widely popular sword fern was Nephrolepis exaltata, but the

original form has been almost entirely replaced by new varieties

developed from it, the most widely known of which is the Boston fern

(N. ex. var. Bostoniensis). The wide popularity of this fern is due to

both its beauty and its hardiness, as it will stand more ill usage than

any other house fern. It grows rapidly and makes a handsome plant at

all stages of development.
