(aka: Arachniodes pseudoaristata) This little-known fern hails from the southern part of the Japanese islands where it forms a slowly spreading clump of upright 2' long stipes ending in stiff triangular fronds. The dark green foliage feels as though it is made from a shredded piece of hard plastic...a far cry from what we typically think of as a fern. I'd like to see a slug try and take a bite out of this one! Arachniodes davalliaeformis makes a unique, albeit slow growing specimen for the woodland garden. If you manage to kill yours, please remember to use the plastic recycling bin.
