Northern Maidenhair Fern
A very beautiful fern, having its ebony stems and delicate fronds. One of the most drought tolerant native ferns in Northern America. Northern maidenhair fern likes to grow in shady conditions in moist but very well drained soils on steep hill sides. It is intolerant of wet habitats. A well behaved native perfect for gardeners looking for a fern to grow without a lot of fuss. Attractive fiddle heads are wine colored in the spring. Graceful palmate fronds flutter in the wind upon the thin ebony stems. Can grow to 2' at maturity.
