(aka: Drynaria fortunei) We obtained this marvelous ribbon fern from China under the name Lepisorus tosaense, but it keyed out to Neolepisorus fortunei. We are thrilled finally have enough to share as a 2017 Plant Delights Nursery introduction. Neolepisorus fortunei 'Green Ribbons' has made a wonderful evergreen groundcover fern in our woodland garden since 2009. The slowly creeping rhizome forms an 8" tall x 3' wide patch (5 years) of 14" long x 1" wide, upright, arching, glossy green leaves. Dry soils in the winter months are recommended in colder climates.
