Northern Maidenhair Fern

Adiantum pedatum

As delicate as can be, this Maidenhair Fern is easy to grow with fan-shaped, swirling pinules to a height of 18”.  The light green leaves have shiny dark stems and prefer rich moist soil in light to full shade.  Don’t let this deciduous native dry out.  Try it with Columbines, Old-fashioned Bleeding Hearts, a masculine Rodgersia and the leathery Bergenia for interesting textures in the woodland garden.
