An attractive, very compact, evergreen fern with finely divided fronds to 30cm. Best in a reasonably sheltered shady spot, doesn't seem too fussy about soil.

This pretty little fern also suits growing in a container or pot very well and is often seen on the show bench at Alpine Garden Society shows and in the alpine display houses at places like RHS Wisley.  Grow in a good compost, perhaps a 50/50 mix of John Innes 2 and a high quality multi-purpose with a little added grit.

Pot grown Polystichum tsussimense can be kept in a sheltered shady spot, perhaps by the house, or they grow well in a cold greenhouse or porch.

From Asia, particularly Korea which gives it the common name of Korean Rock Fern.
