Adiantum aleuticum 'Imbricatum' [Dwarf Aleutian Maidenhair Fern)


Deciduous, height to 30cm.
Adiantum aleuticum is very similar to A. pedatum but noticeably different when compared together. A. aleuticum is native to the western half of North America and East Asia. It is a very hardy fern, and, despite its delicate appearance, very tough.
'Imbricatum' is a dwarf selection with green to blue-green foliage and purple wiry rachis. This variety forms a dense clump and is very easy to establish in good humus-rich, moist soil in shade.
I love this fern grown with bluebells and other spring flowering bulbs. The emerging spring foliage helps to conceal the bulbs leaves as they go over. Also a great fern for containers, the delicate looking foliage a great contrast to broader leaved perrenials such as Brunnera or Pulmonaria.
