Common Name: Himalayan maidenhair fern
This species of maidenhair fern has a delicate appearance, with black stems holding very small leaves of soft green. It forms a low, slow-spreading patch that is in no way invasive.
Excellent foliage for cut flower arrangements. A beautiful edging or groundcover plant. Also great in pots. This takes a couple of years to settle in, appreciating a rich soil that stays evenly moist. Not a good choice for dry shade under thirsty types of trees. Semi-evergreen in mild winter regions.
