Adiantum hispidulum

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 45cm (18in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: N/A to N/A

The rosy maidenhair. Originating from New Zealand, Australia and Asia to the Hawaiian Islands this delightful fern emerges in spring with vibrant rosy red new fronds which mature to dark green. The typical hand shaped fronds are held on dark wiry stems.
The deciduous foliage will form a light airy canopy when planted in a rich moist soil in dappled shade. This variety is only hardy to about -5c, so ideally should be planted in a nicely sheltered well drained spot. In colder areas it can be enjoy as an indoor (winter) outdoor (summer) pot plant. Very useful for flower arranging.
