Hardy Maidenhair Fern Zone 5
I would like to grow maidenhair ferns in my garden. I am on the border of Zone 5/6 in CT - so our winters can be quite cold 10F or below, sometimes, and the summers can be hot and humid, sometimes!
I would like to grow a maidenhair that looks like in indoor version - and I think A. venustum is the closest.
Does anybody have experience with this fern in the Z 5/6 region and/or suggestions. Are there any others that would fit my criteria - I really like the daintyness of the rounded maidenhairs - I have other ferns in my garden that came with the territory! I love them but would like to augment the varieties.
Looking at photos, it seems that A. pedatum has pointed not rounded "leaves" (sorry I don't know the correct terminology). Is this right?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
