Himalayan or Evergreen Maidenhair 'Adiantum venustum'

This is a gorgeous hardy maidenhair fern, with elegant, lacy foliage on black stems that makes this maidenhair fern a standout, even among others in the genus. In addition, when new fronds emerge in early spring, they are bright bronze-pink.
It slowly creeps to produce a stunning yet delicate looking groundcover in light shade. It likes moist, humus rich soil with good drainage.
It is evergreen (in soft winters) and produces a new flush of soft-pink fronds in the spring.

  • Care Instructions

    Early Spring: Divide or transplant as soon as new growth appears, and water well if it is unseasonably dry, as plants prefer an evenly moist soil. Fertilize gently with a slow-release fertilizer or use an organic mulch. Recently planted Ferns may be slow to appear, but be patient.

    Mid-Spring: Water consistently if rainfall is not sufficient to keep soil moist. Apply a 2″ thick mulch of composted leaves or pine needles.

    Late Spring: Watch for slug or snail damage and treat as necessary.

    Summer: Continue regular watering as needed to maintain soil moisture.

    Fall: Cut foliage back to soil level when it dies back after a heavy frost. When the ground freezes, mulch to protect plants from heaving out of the soil in winter.
