Adiantum venustum

Evergreen Maidenhair Fern

A beautiful fern for small, shady spaces, Adiantum venustum is an evergreen, rhizomatous fern (deciduous in cooler areas), with a spreading habit. The fan-shaped leaves sit close together on the slender, black stems, forming ovate green fronds, which can turn an attractive rusty-brown in autumn in cooler areas. Evergreen maidenhair fern dislikes hot midday and afternoon sun, so plant in a shady place, which may get morning sun. As it’s a (rather slow) spreader, propagate by division in early spring. Evergreen maidenhair fern holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
