Lepisorus pseudoussuriensis 'Taoshan'
Taoshan Lepisorus Fern
Item #: 3612
Zones: 7b to 10b
Height: 6" tall
Lepisorus pseudoussuriensis 'Taoshan' is a 2021 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a horticulturally unknown fern that we can finally share from our 2008 Taiwan spore collection. We found this narrow-leaf, epiphytic fern growing in rock cracks as we hiked toward Taiwan's Taoshan waterfall at 7,000' elevation. Growing on a slope in compost rich, well-drained soil in our garden, Lepisorus pseudoussuriensis has made a lovely, small 18" wide clump of pencil-thin (6" long X .25" wide), dark green upright fronds, and has survived upper single digits.
