Adiantum aethiopicum

A tufted fern with light green, lacy fronds on slender, glossy black stems which creep both above and below the ground to form a spreading groundcover. It gorws in full sun to semi shade in moist well drained soil. It can be grown as a groundcover in sunny spots in a fernery, near water features or in containers both inside and outdoors.
