Maidenhair FernAdiantum pedatum 10-12" tall. Also known as Eastern Maidenhair Fern.
Delicate whorled form makes it one of my favorites. Glossy black stems curve up and then droop toward the ground with more narrow black stems growing in elegant arches from the main stem. Tiny distinct ginkgo-like green leaves line every stem.
Ferns make wonderful low-maintenance foliage plants that thrive in woodsy humus-rich soil and lend a serene aura to a shady garden or landscape. Mulch with 2" of leaves if necessary to keep crowns from drying out. All of our ferns are nursery propagated and not dug from the wild.
Prefers partial shade and slightly alkaline soil. Plant 12" apart. Native to eastern North America. Z2. (bare-root crowns)
