Dryopteris xanthomelas 'Sichuan' is our introduction of a Hans Hansen spore collection in Sichuan, China, where it grows between 5,000' and 8,000' elevation. The 1' tall x 20" wide evergreen clumper is composed of 18" long fronds with lovely cinnamon midribs. We have found Dryopteris xanthomelas 'Sichuan' quite easy to grow in our slightly acidic woodland.
