Others, however, leave them to go to seed and watch the birds descend on the tall spikes to collect the bounty.

Maidenhair Fern has an unique appearance Maidenhair fern fronds grow from sixteen to twenty-six inches long and form an intriguing softly-rounded oval shape. The spring-green leaflets are shallow and contain two or three forked veins. The veins have a more prosperous, darker green, making a stunning contrast against the softer hue of the leaves. Despite being robust, the maidenhair fern has a deceptive appearance, that of a delicate plant, due to its tiny leaves. Some describe the leaves as feathery or lacy due to foliage comprising many small, fan-shaped segments. However, most describe the delicate leaves as "hair-like," thus lending this fern its common name. The leaves emerge in late winter or early spring. The earliest leaves of the season are an attractive salmon color, but they soon turn a true spring green. How to Care for a Maidenhair Fern Maidenhair fern is gorgeous when you plant it in the middle or back row of a border planting or as a stand-alone specimen in a shade garden or water garden.

It forms large colonies over time, spreading from a dense root system. It takes little care other than watering. Occasionally, you may wish to dig up unwanted growth and divide it into smaller sections.
