  1. Some kind of fern is my guess,i.e. the one that is called curly cale fern in Danish. I'm not sure what the Latin is, maybe Athyrium filix-femina cv. crispatissima.

  6. I agree with the fern probably Athyrium f.-f. 'Caput-Medusae' or 'Corymbiferum'? Greetings from Bonn and thanks for the really good blog! Michael

  8. Dear John.
    This is magic! What kind CAN it be?

  9. *fail*. I hadn't heard of Anemone crispa, as mentioned above, but it looks a dead ringer after a quick lookup. What amazing foliage.
    It does look like parsley.

  11. Anemone hupehensis 'Crispa' as a guess looking at the leaf stems and how the 'leaves' are held.

  14. parsley. It looks very different to mine which is now in full flower. The green umbels of this biennial plant look rather nice- as will yours-next year
