(aka: Adiantum sp. A1M-087) This selection of Adiantum capillus-veneris is from my 1994 Mexican expedition from 2500' elevation in the Sierra Chiquita mountains in the Northern Mexico state of Tamaulipas. This vigorous, but tightly clumping selection of southern maidenhair fern makes a nice 10" tall x 18" wide specimen in the moist woodland garden.
