he Victorian Fern Craze-A History of Pteridomania by David Elliston Allen is a delightful little book (83 pp. – 1969) describing the exploits of the European and British fern gardeners and explorers of the 19th Century. One aspect of the Craze was the production of very intricate interior Wardian cases. Another was the discovery and naming of hundreds of fern freaks or unusual forms of ferns – particularly lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina), male fern (Dryopteris filix-mas, a complex now comprising several species), and the Hart’s-tongue fern (Asplenium scolopendrium).

Pteridomania or Fern-Fever was a Victorian craze for ferns. Decorative arts of the period presented the fern motif in pottery, glass, metal, textiles, wood, printed paper, and sculpture, with ferns "appearing on everything from christening presents to gravestones and memorials".
