Without a doubt, the widespread Adiantum pedatum (Canada south to Florida) is one of our most elegant North American native ferns. The horizontal horseshoe-like wreath of foliage rests atop 18-24" tall, wiry black stems. Northern maidenhair fern thrives in moist, rich soil, but also grows well in all but the driest of woodland garden sites. The light, airy, fine texture of Adiantum pedatum fronds serves as a perfect backdrop for hostas and other bold foliage plants. In early April, this deciduous native fern unfurls for a true Kodak moment. In 10 years, expect a 2' wide deer-resistant clump. In the 1900s, Adiantum pedatum was used medicinally to treat arthritis, asthma, nasal congestion, wound bleeding, and to cleanse and condition shiny hair...better plant several clumps.
