Athyrium filix-femina is an upright fern with finely cut light green fronds. The cultivar ‘Lady in Red’ has attractive, contrasting red stems and is highly recommended. If happy, will spread to establish a large clump of plants. Our ferns get considerable afternoon sun and have not suffered a whit for moisture or excessive sun. Deer don’t generally bother this or other ferns. This fern is a beautiful, low-maintenance foliage plant that can be mixed in with other shade plants.
