Looking for Nephrolepsis exaltata 'Norwoodii'

I am looking for Nephrolepsis exaltata 'Norwoodii.' Does anyone grow it, have any for sale or trade, or know of a source for it? Anyone have a photo? I saw someone buy a Norwood fern at a plant sale about 20 years ago, and I've wanted one just like that plant ever since. It had very finely cut leaves and was a very fluffy fern. I've never been able to come across a photo of it to be sure exactly what the plant looks like.

RE: Looking for Nephrolepsis exaltata 'Norwoodii'

Greetings from Australia, plantlady, I don't know if you are still looking for a norwoodii, but I bought a beautiful specimen in 1971, and it still going strong and is magnificent. There is a rather inferior, ratty-looking variety here called 'susie wong', that has a tendency to be unstable in it's leaf form. I haven't seen a norwoodii for sale in 40 years.
