Hardy Northern Maidenhair Fern - Adiantum pedatum - 4" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Without a doubt, this is one of the most elegant native plants. The horizontal horseshoe-like wreath of foliage rests atop 18-24" tall wiry black stems. Northern maidenhair fern thrives in moist, rich soil, but also grows well in all but the driest of garden sites. The light airy texture serves as a perfect backdrop for hostas and other bold foliage plants. Shipped dormant in the late fall, winter and early spring.
Whether used in borders or as a background, ferns enhance any garden with their gracefulness and their beautiful varying shades of green. Easy to grow almost anyplace...thrive even when other plants fail.
FERN: A fern is any one of a group of about 12,000 species of plants. Unlike mosses they have xylem and phloem (making them vascular plants). They have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants. Ferns do not have either seeds or flowers (they reproduce via spores).
