Maidenhair Spleenwort Asplenium trichomanes belongs to a genus which
has over 600 species, most of them growing in the tropics. The spleenworts
are beautiful little evergreen ferns often found growing in rock crevices
or in the cracks of a stone wall. The paired leaflets of some species make
the fronds look like little green ladders with dark stalks and midribs. Other
species such as Mountain Spleenwort Asplenium montanum have the
leaflets divided again so the frond looks more fern-like.
