The Tokyo wood fern is one of those little known but very easy-to-grow deciduous woodland ferns, native to woodlands from Honshu to Shikoku and across to Korea. The tight, 3' wide deer-resistant clump of upright, narrow, 3' long fronds provides a nice vertical accent in the woodland garden. We think Dryopteris tokyoensis, which we find similar to a dwarf Dryopteris celsa, is an exceptional fern for the woodland shade garden.
