Need fern ID, please

eahamel(9a)July 9, 2012

A nursery here in Houston has everything 70% off! I got these three ferns for $2.25 each, can't beat that! But I would like to know the genus and species, please. They're about 18" tall.

These would be good in a large hanging basket, too. I used to have a smaller growing one that looked like this but lost it in a bad freeze.

Does someone know if this type would do okay indoors in a pot?

Oops! Here it is.

I found out what it is anyway - Polypodium aureum 'Blue Star'

The current name is Phlebodium aureum. At the present Polypodium aureum is considered a synonym.
