For example, recent studies of vascular development in Matteuccia
(Ma & Steeves, 1994, 1995) identify cells in the subsurface layer of the shoot apex itself as provascular tissue in early stages of differentiation.

If you have a dull, shady corner, planting possibilities extend to a rich diversity of textures and cool shades of green, including finely quilted hostas, Fatsia japonica and unfurling ferns such as Matteuccia

struthiopteris is one of the easiest ferns to identify.
