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.

A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.
