More Information About Arachniodes
Arachniodes is a genus of mostly evergreen ferns that hail primarily from Asia...some colonizers and others that grow in tight clumps. In appearance, arachniodes are similar to dryopteris, with virtually all arachniodes species having good garden merit. Typically, arachniodes are not the fastest ferns to grow, but they make great long-term garden perennials. A few arachniodes species have thick foliage with a leathery or plastic appearance to them.
Like most ferns, arachniodes prefers partial shade and moist, well-drained, rich soil. As with most ferns, arachniodes are quite deer-resistant. In the woodland perennial garden, arachniodes pair well with hosta, helleborus, aspidistra or bergenia.
