I was looking at buying a lovely plant that is listed on the seller's site as Polypodium cambricum 'Pulcherrimum,' with a synonym listed as P. vulgare. http://siskiyourareplantnursery.com/polypodiumvulgarepulcher...
But I'm not finding anything in the database that looks very like the photos I find for the 'Pulcherrimum'. Can someone tell me what is the accepted name for this particular fern?

Does it look like this? If so, I'll add "Addison' to the cultivar name.

Polypodium cambricum 'Pulcherrimum Addison'

By the way, P. vulgare is not a synonym. P. cambricum and P. vulgare are two different species names and both are accepted names.

Good. I added Addison because that's what most sites are calling it.

That's what I noticed, too.
