(Mature Size: 12-36"T x Spreading) (Adiantum pedatum)
The 'Five Finger Maidenhair' has long topped the popularity list for native North American ferns.
Even those who dismiss ferns as "all looking alike" appreciate this species for bringing grace and beauty to the shady garden.
The pedate frond hand waves its airy fingers horizontally from atop a purple black stipe (stem) of 1 to 3 feet in height.
The graceful fingers of this fern look nice next to blue-margined hostas like 'June' and 'Lakeside Beach Captain'.
In time, with good moist compost and filtered light this will form a lush clump gradually spreading its welcome wands of foliage.
Brighter light will reduce the size of the fronds but full sun does not make for a happy plant!
Although deciduous and depending on Mother Nature's whims, it can hold its fronds into late fall.
It is content in gardens from Zone 2 (where it is clearly one of the most ornamental options) to Zone 8.
