Doodia aspera, the Rasp Fern...Used this a lot in rainforest themed gardens on less than ideal soils, hardy and attractive with pinkish new growth, and handling a bit of dry air and sun.

I'll never forget getting to the remote basaltic "island" summit of Mount Colong west of Sydney, where a tall eucalypt forest stands untouched, with a grassy understorey run through with Rasp Fern, a stark contrast to the tangled low sclerophyllous forest we climbed through..
