Adiantum pedatum Imbricatum


A very pretty clump forming, deciduous fern with delicate, finger like fronds from thin black stem.



Northern maidenhair is of delicate appearance – a slowly creeping rootstock produces thin wiry stems that are topped by elegant hand-shaped leaves, each comprised of overlapping green leaflets. It is robust fern that belies its appearance and can be grown in full sun if not allowed to dry out completely. Ideally best grown in a moisture retentive, freely drained position.
