The hardiest maidenhair fern
Adiantum pedatum 'Imbricatum' is a slow-growing fern whose short rhizomes can, over time, form large colonies.
It has majestic palmate fronds, rather like a parasol or open hand, which are borne on fine, shiny black petioles. Adianthus 'Imbricatum' is a more compact variety than the type species. Height: 20 to -30 cm.
It's a great addition to a partial shade garden to contrast with mammoth-leaved, moisture-loving varieties (Hosta, Rodgersia, Trachystemon orientalis, Astilboides tabularis), or it can be planted:
In the garden we grow Adianthum pedatum 'Imbricatum' in partial shade in humus-rich, moist to humid, but well-drained soil.
Despite appearances it's a sturdy fern that can cope with sunshine (morning sun). Hardiness: -15°C
Maintenance: trim the dried fronds then add a mulch of leaf compost at the beginning of winter.
