Athyrium filix-femina ‘Lady in Red’
at Digging Dog

Athyrium

Lady Fern

Our highly ornamental offerings fashion distinctive fronds sprouting from a deciduous clump that relishes shady damp recesses. Old leaves can be left standing throughout the winter and cut back in the spring, just after the new ones burst forth.

Athyrium filix-femina ‘Lady in Red’ partial shade  shade lover

We applaud the New England Wildflower Society for discovering this fantastic sturdy form of the native Lady Fern, which roams the eastern and central areas of our country. Forging an elegant vase shape, uniquely colored red-violet stems are hard to miss and look especially vibrant against artful light green, lacy foliage. The dense deciduous clump maintains a fresh appearance as new delicate-looking leaves unfurl throughout the growing season. Unfazed by deer, rabbits and poor clay soil, easily maintained ‘Lady in Red’ spreads gradually and lends bold colorful accents to perennial plantings or woodland gardens.

Size: 18"–3' 0" high x 18"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
