Adiantum venustum (Himalayan Maidenhair Fern)

Himalayan Maidenhair Fern

Adiantum venustum

Delicate tear-shaped blue-green leaflets drape the 6-12" purplish-black stems as new fronds emerge bronzy-pink. Leisurely it establishes itself in the woodland garden when provided rich, evenly moist soil, eventually forming a respectable colony. Suffers a bit in hot humid summers.
Height: 6-12 in
Spacing: 12 in
Hardiness Zone: 5 – 8
