Our offering of Lepisorus bicolor is the true plant, not the similar Microsorum fortunei, which is always sold under this name. Hailing from China, India, and Nepal, Lepisorus bicolor can be found from 3,000'-10,000' elevation. The 15" long x 2" wide plastic-feeling upright, glossy evergreen leaves emerge from a slowly spreading rhizome, eventually forming a 2-3' wide patch in the woodland garden. The distinguishing spore pattern only extends from leaf tip down to the center of the leaf back.
