The Japanese Holly Fern, Cyrtomium fortunei, is growing here on the (almost) permanently shaded 'cliff' at the rear of the house. The 'cliff' consists partly of a natural rock face and partly of a naturalistic retaining wall. It is home to mosses, the devilish Helxine soleirolii otherwise known as Soleirolia soleirolii (try pronouncing this quickly several times in a row!), various ferns, Primula vulgaris, Bowles' Golden Grass (Milium effusum 'Aureum'), Ramondas (still experimental and not fully successful), epiphytic cacti and bromeliads together with miscellaneous items.
