Maidenhair Triad (Adiantum jordanii, A. aleuticum, A. capillus-veneris)
Three west coast native species of maidenhair ferns: Jordan's Maidenhair (A. jordanii), the delightful Five-Finger Fern (Adiantum aleuticum,
also known as A. pedatum) and the graceful Southern
Maidenhair Fern (A. capillus-veneris). In the field,
sterile hybrids can be found between A. aleuticum and A. jordanii, and have been called A. tracyi.
Many species of Adiantum can be found in cultivation,
and they each make a lovely addition to moist shade gardens
throughout the west. The fronds are deciduous in the winter,
but are delicately green and lovely throughout the growing season.
