This Asplenium trichomanes, commonly known as the maidenhair spleenwort, is a hardy fern. With its easy-to-grow nature, this fern thrives in full to half shade, making it perfect for adding a touch of greenery to those shadier areas of your garden. It appreciates regular watering and ideally prefers a slightly gritty mix in the soil. 


This versatile plant can adapt to almost any soil type, flourishing in woodland settings. Recognized with the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (RHS AGM), the Asplenium trichomanes is known for its hardiness in all of the UK and northern Europe, tolerating temperatures as low as -20°C to -15°C. 


This fern has a tufted, clump forming habit and displays evergreen foliage that reaches heights of 10 to 25 cm (0.5 - 1 ft) with a similar spread. Given time, this herbaceous perennial will reach its full growth potential within 5 to 10 years. The Asplenium trichomanes perfectly complements shady areas and adds a splash of vibrant green to your garden.
