Maidenhair Fern this delicate deciduous fern is prized for its lacy foliage and beautiful, thick black stems.
A North American native, this gorgeous fern is excellent for both indoor and outdoor planting, and the graceful fronds are dazzling in bouquets.
Like most ferns, the maidenhair fern is a low-maintenance plant that is well-adapted to shade, but it will do wonderfully in sunnier spots as long as it is kept moist. With a spread of approximately 2 feet high and 2 feet wide, it’s easy to tuck into any space that needs a pop of color. This fern can spread via rhizomes beneath the soil, making it an excellent choice for naturalizing.
When planting outdoors, look for a slightly sheltered spot with plenty of moisture. Shady borders, rock gardens, or areas near water features are all excellent choices. With a little protection from frost, this fern is hardy in zones 3-9. Best of all, this pretty small plant is deer resistant.
Maidenhair ferns also make beautiful houseplants.
Indoors, they prefer soil that stays moist (not wet) at all times, good air circulation, and a somewhat sunny spot in the house. This fern does exceptionally well in self-watering pots or set on top of a pebble tray with a little water to keep the soil moist.
