Dryopteris stenolepis is a beautifully symmetrical deciduous 18" tall x 3' wide clumping fern that hails from streamside slopes at 2,000'-7,000' from India and Nepal and into southern China and Taiwan. Dryopteris stenolepis is one of the most elegant ferns that's strangely absent from gardens...similar to a fancier form of Dryopteris atrata. Dryopteris stenolepis has become one of our favorites in the entire garden.
