Product Description

Sharing is caring!

This foot tall native evergreen fern provides a light airy texture to average to moist shady sites.  (It loves calcium .so it thrives in shelly ground or on or near masonry work.)  Southern Maidenhair Ferns have a very wide natural range. Plants propagated from cooler parts of the fern’s range are not likely to thrive in the Coastal South. Our plants were propagated from a garden population in the Historic District of Beaufort, SC. It has grown there since the early 1990’s without any irrigation. The only maintenance it has received was an occasional mulching with hardwood leaves, dusting with lime and weeding. Since they were planted under Camphor Trees (Cinnamomum camphora), which seed profusely, weeding was necessary. However, the Southern Maidenhair Ferns are now so thick that the camphor trees cannot germinate there anymore. If planted under evergreens on the sea islands of South Carolina, Southern Maidenhairs are evergreen most winters. On a historical note, Southern Maidenhair Ferns were also used medicinally.
