I thought I'd post this here first before I try the Plant ID forum. I think I got this in a trade and, stupid me, forgot to label. I went back through all my completed trades and couldn't find it.
I hope someone knows what it is. I mainly want to find out if it's hardy or tender so I know whether to go ahead and plant it or overwinter it indoors.
Thanks to all.

Maybe Polystichum acrostichoides?

Don't think it is Christmas Fern. The leaf texture is completely different from any Christmas Fern I've ever seen. Much softer.

Possibly Diplazium pycnocarpon.

Hey, postmandug, I think you've got it. And now I remember trading for 'Ostrich Fern'. I am almost positive it is Tennessee Ostrich fern and I'm thrilled to have it. Thanks. :-)

I asked admin if the name should be changed from Athyrium to Diplazium in the PFs. They changed it to Diplazium. Has a ring to it, doesn't it?
I'm going to go ahead and plant it in the ground in very good soil. Can't wait to see how it does next year. I love it.
