Nothern Maidenhair Fern Characteristics
Northern Maidenhair Ferns are easy to grow, low maintenance ferns. Consistently moist soils are preferable in full shade. They spread by the root systems and can create large colonies of overlapping fronds. These colonies can be used as attractive groundcovers in shady areas.
There are few serious disease or insect issues that threaten Northern Maidenhair Fern. The hot temperatures of mid summer may cause some foliage decline if adequate shade and soil moisture is not provided.
