(syn: HH-03CH038) This unusual selection of Cyrtomium fortunei comes from a 2003 Hans Hansen expedition to China, where it was discovered at 4700' elevation in Tao Yuan, China. This unique form of Cyrtomium fortunei makes an 18" tall x 3.5' wide evergreen clump with fronds composed of narrow pinnae that are unusually ruffled and highlighted by a very dark central stipe and a dark central leaf vein...very attractive and deer-resistant!
