(aka: Dryopteris atrata) Dryopteris cycadina is a medium-sized, semi-evergreen Chinese fern that is a distinctive addition to the woodland garden with its very dark-green, heavily textured foliage and black stipe (sort of like a petiole)...well, it's awfully hard to describe a fern, but this one is really nice. When it emerges in spring, all of the visitors comment on its beauty, then leave the nursery with several!
