Maidenhair Spleenwort (Asplenium trichomanes subsp. trichomanes)

10.00

Linear fronds with 15-30 pairs of dark green pinnae are borne on slender glossy brownish-black stipes. The minutely stalked pinnae are usually asymmetric rounded oblongs with variably toothed edges. Aging fronds shed their pinnae over time while building up a persistent tuft of leafless stipes below the current year's fronds. Colonies of maidenhair spleenwort usually grow in fissures where small moss and humus accumulations provide a moisture retentive yet well drained and aerated root run. Although these rocky denizens may occur on a southerly slope they are always situated out of the direct sun, and we have found that they prefer slightly acid soils.
