Red Stripes and Green Lace

Lady in Red Fern, Athyrium felix-forma 'Lady in Red', is strong-growing and dependable. Tough and easy to grow, this sultry beauty is the right choice for perennial borders and woodlands alike!

A breathtaking flush of new fronds appears in the spring, with new leaves appearing throughout the season for a continuously fresh look.  The lacy, light green foliage is held upright on dark, brilliant red-violet stripes (fern stems).

Each plant of this slowly spreading fern should spread to 3' in 5 years.  Lady in Red Fern is a deciduous, easy-to-grow fern that makes a great blending plant for hosta and other bold-leaf plants in the woodland garden.  

Lady in Red Ferns prefers to be grown in part to full shade in average to rich, moist but well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly acid; provides seasonal cover for birds and other wildlife.  Lady in Red Ferns make a good ground cover in shaded areas.  The colorful fronds can be used in fresh arrangements. 

Ferns can be divided and transplanted in spring and early summer, planting the crown at the surface. They thrive even when other plants fail!

Whether used in borders or as a background, ferns can add texture and color to any garden with their gracefulness and beautiful varying shades of green!

Tough plant Review by Liz
For me, the lady in Red is the easiest fern to grow.
Easy to grow Review by MKN
Lady in Red ferns grow much better in organic soils than some of the heavy soils I have. Used a lot of bagged soil to make them look good.
