Fern - Lady
3' of Green Lace
The Lady Fern, 'Athyrium filixfemina', is a lovely, deciduous fern that is bright yellow-green with wide, deep cut or lacy leaves that are tapered at the end.
It is a real favorite that reaches a height of 2-3'!
The plants spread slowly to form dense clumps, and under the right conditions, Lady Ferns will continue to send up new fronds into the summer.
‘Lady’ ferns will grow in a group in the shape of a circle, and as they grow farther and farther outwards, the centers die away, leaving a ring of ‘Lady’ ferns!
‘Lady’ fern is one of the easiest ferns to grow. It prefers to be grown in part to full shade in average to rich, moist but well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly acid.
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!
