About Maidenhair Fern

Plants often get their names from folklore! The Maidenhair Fern genus is derived from the Greek word for "unwetted" because rainwater runs off the fronds. The arrangement of leaflets on the fern mirrors the hair of Venus, from Roman mythology. She was a creature of the sea, amply developed and with remarkable dry hair. Thus the common name maidenhair fern we use today.
