(aka: Polystichum lonchitoides) Cyrtomium lonchitoides is a little-known holly fern that hails from forests between 4,000' and 8,500' elevation in the Chinese provinces of Gansu, Guangxi, Guizhou, Henan, Sichuan, Xizang, and Yunnan. For us, Cyrtomium lonchitoides has developed into a lovely compact evergreen fern to 1' tall x 2' wide in our woodland garden. Well-drained soils are best since Cyrtomium lonchitoides often grows in the wild as a lithophyte on rocks.
