(coll. #A1K-254) In 1997, as we climbed past the base of Korea's Wolchusan Mountain at 1,000', I spotted a huge patch of rabbit's foot fern growing on a giant boulder. Amazingly, this find turned out to be completely winter-hardy back here in our Zone 7b garden. Looking just like the hanging basket plant, the thick "hairy" rabbit's foot rhizomes creep very slowly while giving rise in spring to 6" tall, lacy green fronds. Davallia performs much better when planted on a slope...the steeper, the better. We're still amazed we found a winter-hardy form of this great houseplant.
