Description :

Asplenium trichomanes is found in all mountainous regions from Europe to Asia, North America, Latin America, Africa and Australia!

This rock-loving plant can thrive on an old moss-covered wall, in masonry cracks or in the cool shade of a stone well. It is very strong and hardy.

It forms small 10 - 15 cm tufts with finely pinnate, shiny evergreen leaves.

Asplenium trichomanes, the type species, prefers acidic rocks such as sandstone, basalt and granite and a simple bed of humus.

Plant it in partial shade in an alpine rockery in a mixture of equal parts of good garden soil, rough sand and leaf mould (with a touch of ericaceous compost).

It grows well in a pot or trough and in the company of other alpine plants such as: Saxifraga, Cyclamen coum, Scleranthus, Raoulia
