Re: Adiantum capillus-veneris


That brings up the form of Adiantum capillus-veneris that Siskiyou
Nursery sold for years as A. c-v Michigan Hardy.  We actually are
propagating this now and would like to find an original location for
this.  Does anyone on the list have first hand knowledge where this is
from.  The USDA plants database shows all the other disjunct populations,
but mentions no collections from Michigan.

  I remember seeing a wonderful, very large maidenhair cascading down a rock
  face in the fern room display at Fernwood Botanic Garden in Niles, MI.   I
  think it was Adiantum capillus-veneris.
  Do you know if it was, and if so, is it still there?  It was worth the whole
  trip as I remember it.
