Lady Ferns, Athyrium felix-feminand, have yellow-green to medium green fronds with feathery blade pairs. The upper blades of the Lady Ferns are long-tapering and ascending. Plants spread slowly to form dense clumps. Under the right conditions Lady Ferns will continue to send up new fronds well into the summer months.
How to Grow: Lady ferns are one of the easiest ferns to grow. They prefer to be grown in part to full shade in average to rich, moist but well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly acid. Plants can be divided and transplanted in spring and early summer, planting the crown at the surface.
Landscape uses: Plant lady ferns in woodland gardens, shade gardens, with hostas and other shade plants, or with large flowering plants and shrubs.
