(syn: D. buschiana) Dryopteris crassirhizoma is a handsome, tall, Clark Gablesque, vase-shaped fern usually forms a stunning solitary crown and can reach 3'+ tall when happy. The semi-evergreen, thick-textured fronds give a very tropical appearance in the garden. In winter, the fronds remain green but lie flat on the ground, helping to protect those nearby from the ravages of winter. Our plants were grown from spores from 4150' in elevation on South Korea's famed Mt. Odae.
