The Northern Maidenhair Fern, also known as Adiantum pedatum, is a delicate and beautiful fern that is native to North America. It's known for its unique, fan-shaped leaf patterns and its arching fronds.

This fern typically grows to a height of 1-2.5 feet with a similar spread. It prefers part shade to full shade and thrives best in well-drained, moist, fertile soils. The Northern Maidenhair Fern is a great choice for woodland gardens, shaded borders, or other areas of the landscape that receive less sunlight.

The leaves of the Northern Maidenhair Fern are compound and have a bright green color. The stems are black and wiry, providing a striking contrast to the leaves.

This fern is a low-maintenance plant that is resistant to most common garden pests and diseases. However, it's important to keep the soil consistently moist, as it does not tolerate drought well.
