More Information

Description Lady Fern (or Athyrium filix-fermina) is aptly named for its elegant appearance in shade gardens! Light green fronds emerge in early spring with small and intricate leaflets, creating a lacy texture that stands out among other foliage plants. The fronds arch as they effortlessly fill in gaps under trees, between shrubs, or alongside ponds and streams.

While Lady Fern may look high maintenance, it's incredibly easy to grow in moist and well-draining soils. It's deer, rabbit, and disease resistant, which means the fronds keep their appeal all season long. It naturalizes well when grown in optimal conditions (even in clay and wet soils), making it a great choice for nearly every gardener.
Details Botanical name: Athyrium filix-femina
Common name: Lady fern, female polypody
Zone: 4 - 8
Sun exposure: shade (< 4 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 1-3' tall x 1.5-2.5' wide
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Spring to fall
Uses: Accents, border, container, ground cover, small spaces, specimen, underplanting, waterside.
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in organically rich, moist, well-drained soil.
Light: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun). It can handle more sun if the soil is moist, but the fronds risk burning.
Water: Tolerates more soil dryness than some other ferns, but the soil must not be allowed to dry out.
Spacing: 1.5 – 2.5 ft apart
Fertilizing: Annual application of compost. Avoid any inorganic fertilizers, as they may burn the roots.
Winterizing: Leaves should be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Very low maintenance. Trim leaves in the late fall or early spring. Plants can be propagated by division in spring every few years as desired.

Lady ferns

When they arrived they were great. Very nice plants. Followed the planting instructions and put in my perennial shade garden. Looked great for a few weeks and then went backwards big time. We have had a lot of heat and big winds. Branches broke off and plants are dying. I really liked them so I will try again next year. Probably my gardening skills to blame. Everything else I got is doing great.

The dirt was spilled out upon arrival but they were alive. Got 3, 2 are doing well, the third is trying. I think it will be fine
