Lady In Red Fern

Athyrium filix-femina 'Lady in Red'


With finely textured light green foliage held on vividly contrasting red-violet stems, Lady in Red typically grows slightly smaller than other varieties. Combine with bold-leaved plants in the shade or woodland garden such as hostas and brightly colored heucheras. Ferns are perfect for the shade garden. Lacy fronds soften the texture of other shade classics like Hosta, Astilbe and Tiarella. Always welcome in a naturalized setting, Ferns like a woodland setting with loamy soil with lots of leaf mold. Most are fine with acidity making them perfect near evergreens.
