The lovely foliage of Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum pedatum) provides a perfect foil for other plants in the woodland or shade garden. Excellent for naturalizing on shaded hillsides, or any protected shady area, this fern thrives in well-drained to slightly damp soil. If the soil becomes too dry the plant can go dormant and then return when there is enough moisture. Maidenhair Fern spreads slowly by branching rhizomes to form large colonies over time. It needs shelter from the wind to look its best.
