I've never seen this type of maidenhair before. Is it a western native...I know the climate out there fosters every kind of fern imaginable. is it decidous?

It is a native, I read somewhere it is on the top ten list of perennial ferns. It is deciduous unfortunately as it is doing a great job of hiding an ugly downspout right now.

I can see why it's in the top ten... I like the other maidenhair too...now that I have cinnamomea established, I just might try a maidenhair...getting adventurous, I am.
