This narrow, pinnae (leaflet) selection of Fortune's holly fern comes from a 2003 Hans Hansen expedition to China. Each leaf is highlighted by a dark central vein that seems to be common in this 4700' elevation Tao Yuan population. The narrow leaves give an almost airy appearance to the 2' wide x 1' tall evergreen clumps.
