(aka: Dryopteris cystolepidota) Dryopteris nipponensis is a cousin of the better-known autumn fern, that makes a 2' tall x 3' wide evergreen, deer-resistant clump with foliage that is shorter and broader than Dryopteris erythrosora. The elegant, foliage texture makes this a favorite of garden visitors, who have bugged us to propagate it for years...enough, already! The new growth in spring is tinted red for a wonderful contrast. Dryopteris nipponensis is easy to grow in typical woodland garden conditions...moist or dry.
