Athyrium felix - femina 'Lady in Red'

Fern, Lady Fern

The lacy light green foliage is held upright on dark brilliant red-violet stems. Each plant of this slowly spreading fern should spread to 3' in five years. This deciduous easy-to-grow fern makes a great blending plant for Hosta and other bold-leaf plants in the woodland garden.

Fern, Lady Fern Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:
To obtain the intense red stems of an established plant, do not fertilized with nitrogen as it stimulates the production of green chlorophyll which will mask the red color. Plants must undergo winter dormancy for bright color and full color does not occur until the second dormancy and maturity in the garden.
