If you're turned on by uniformed males, have we got a fern for you. From the mountainous woodlands of China, Japan, and Korea comes this easy-to-grow Asian native, which forms a medium sized tight clump of 2' long erect dark evergreen fronds. We have found this grows best in slightly moist woodland soil.
