Dryopteris pulcherrima - Beautiful Wood Fern

Evergreen, height to 60cm.
A new species of evergreen fern and deserved of its species name 'pulcherrima' which means 'beautiful' in Latin.
The fronds are a rich green and stay evergreen throughout the winter. It is a native of temperate regions of China, hardy in zones 6-9. Could be a good choice for mediterranean gardens as it is tolerant of summer heat.
Seems easy enough to grow in humus rich soil in shade.
