Adiantum pubescens (Bronze Venus Maidenhair Fern)

10.00

Often confused with A. hispidulum (the Rosy or Rough maidenhair fern), since they both have a similar habit with pubescent hairs on the pinnae and colored new growth. A. pubescens has bronze colored new growth rather than intense red, and its blade tends to be somewhat wider than A. hispidulum. This fern makes a handsome houseplant, or a wonderful addition to the garden in warm climates with mild winters (USDA Zones 8, 9 and 10). It is somewhat drought tolerant compared to temperate maidenhair species, and prefers light periodic watering but does not like to be drenched. If grown outdoors in marginal climates it prefers to be protected from excessive wetness in the winter; cultivate in well drained soil or situate on a slope for maximum drainage.

Frond Condition: Evergreen indoors or in zone 9; semi-evergreen to deciduous in colder conditions

Mature Size: 18” (1.5 ft)

Origin: Australia, New Zealand

USDA Zones: 7 (marginal), 8 (marginal), 9, 10
