After walking through acres of Arachniodes standishii on Korea's Ulleung Island, we understand why magically elegant upside-down fern is probably the most sought-after fern by gardeners worldwide. The lacy, cutleaf, 18" fronds rise from a thick, slowly creeping rhizome. Our 18-year-old clumps of the easy-to-grow Arachniodes standishii are only 3-4' wide. Upside-down fern is tardily deciduous, still looking fresh well into the new year.

Arachniodes standishii can be a bit slower growing than other ferns but more than worth the wait for it will in time become a gorgeous clump. It wants a lightly shady location with average moisture.
