Semi-evergreen. This plant is a native of the Himalayas, where it grows among rocks at high altitudes, thus making it cold hardy. The fronds are large and coarsely divided with prominently toothed segments, held on black stalks. New growth in late winter and early spring is a bright bronze-pink. It grows about 6" tall, with indefinite spread, growing by creeping rhizomes.

We are thrilled to offer one of the most coveted of the hardy maidenhair ferns. According to Dr. John Mickel, in Ferns for American Gardens, "The Himalayan maidenhair has become one of the great all-time ferns." This dainty semi-evergreen gem is amazingly cold hardy but less so in long hot summers, although when given enough summer moisture it has performed admirably in our NC garden. While slow to get started, Adiantum venustum makes a nice patch to 3' wide in 5-10 years, depending on the quality of soil preparation. This is an easy-to-grow winner for the woodland garden!

This superb ground covering fern has small round leaflets. The light green to bronze new growth grows over the top of the darker green mature foliage. This fern makes a lovely ground cover at the foot of rhododendrons.
