Description :

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:

  • with Pachysandra terminalis as its delicate fronds go marvellously with the flat, uniform mat of Japanese spurge, creating an attractive foliage contrasts (light green / dark shiny green) and soft/crisp-cut shapes;
  • in a crevice in a rock garden, where it will cope with stony soil as long as it's kept constantly moist;
  • in a pot, it can be grown in a fresh, shady corner of a patio.

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.
