Cold Hardy Perennials

Adiantum pedatum

Northern Maidenhair Fern
This Native Fern, with its horseshoe whorl of delicate green foliage on wiry dark stems is so elegant, but it is not a plant for dry soil, as this fern thrives in a humus rich evenly moist soil, with good winter drainage. With the right conditions, it will grow to 2' tall and over time form clumps as wide. We used it in this shade planter with Tolmeia 'cool Gold' and Begonia 'Concorde'.
