Arachniodes miqueliana is an easy-to-grow favorite of fern guru Dr. John Mickel, who generously shared spores from his home garden. Arachniodes miqueliana is similar in form to the beloved Arachniodes standishii with 2' long, arching, finely cut, lacy fronds that are extraordinarily wide at the base. The slowly creeping (not weedy) rhizomes form a superb patch. Just as with its relative Arachniodes standishii, Arachniodes miqueliana is very late to drop its foliage for the winter. We find Arachniodes miqueliana simply a superb hardy fern that should be in all woodland gardens!
