Description
 
Newly introduced evergreen fern from China which we hope to see fall of 2015 when we go plant hunting in its native Anhui Province.  The species epithet "pulcherimma", means "Beautiful" in Latin although this was named by a taxonomist so it could mean it has gorgeous scales on the rachis under serious magnification.  Seriously, It is a looker and very heat tolerant which is increasingly becoming an attribute.
