Dryopteris formosana is an Asian native (China, Taiwan, and Japan), related to the more popular Dryopteris erythrosora. Dryopteris formosana makes an attractive, easy-to-grow, 18" tall x 30" wide evergreen clump of airy-textured, 2' long, deep green fronds, which widen considerably at the base where the last set of pinnules turns downward...quite unique and very easy to grow in typical garden conditions.
