This plant appears to have two common names. I have given it the one I prefer which is the Rosy Maidenhair. That is because the new foliage does have a wonderful pinkish coloration that greatly adds to its appeal. The other common name is the Rough Maidenhair and that is because each pinna is clad with rough textured, oblong to fan-shaped, medium to dark green pinnules, that are much larder than other maidenhairs. It forms a nice clump and can get to be 12″-18″ tall and spread via wiry, short rhizomes.
