Fuzzy Maidenhair Fern

The Fuzzy Maidenhair (Adiantum tricholepis) is a rare native of Texas with a range extending south into Mexico and Central America. Fuzzy? Yes, the ultimate segments are hairy, a rather unusual feature for a maidenhair, but it’s thought to give it more heat tolerance. This species creeps very slowly and produces gracefully arching or pendulous clusters of fronds. In nature it prefers shade and limestone where it is found tucked among rocks and boulders along streams or clinging to steep slopes. This is an interesting plant for growers in Zones 8 to 11.
