About this book

The outline manuscript left by the late Jimmy Dyce has been edited, expanded and completed for publication by Robert Sykes and Martin Rickard. The monograph now presents in detail the Dyce system for classifying and naming fern cultivars, and provides descriptive text and abundant illustrations of the three British species of shield fern (Polystichum aculeatum, P. lonchitis & P. setiferum) and their numerous varieties. It is now the definitive reference for the confident identification and accurate naming of the cultivars in this horticulturally important group of ferns.
