The Maidenhair ferns are delicate in appearance. The Southern Maidenhair Fern is very similar to the Maidenhair Fern although the delicate mid-green leaves ‘hang’ from the shiny, dark stems in a zig-zag pattern on this species, forming a fine textured mound above the wiry, dark stems. A deciduous fern.
