Common Name: Maidenhair Fern Family: Pteridaceae (The Maidenhair Fern Family)

Adiantum aleuticum (syn. pedatum)
Zoom In Photo:

Maidenhair fern is one of the most beautiful ferns for the garden. The fronds are atypical in that they are palmate -- like a hand with fingers. They are held on black stems. Maidenhair fern is a native of BC and is frequently found on deeply shaded steep banks and cliffs. In the garden, however, it is quite amenable to average garden soils in full to part shade. Synonym: A. pedatum.
