One of the most tolerant ferns you can grow
Botanical Name: Athyrium felix-forma 'Lady in Red'
Hardiness Zone: 5-8
This impressive shade lover is one of the most tolerant ferns you can grow. Lacy, deep green fronds are held aloft by vibrant burgundy stems to create a bi-color fountain effect in the landscape that is outstanding and loaded with texture. 'Lady in Red' forms a sizeable clump as it matures and provides excellent cover to a number of native songbirds while providing nesting material from dried fronds. Plant it in groups in moist soils for best performance but 'Lady in Red' is one of the most tolerant ferns of slightly drier soils, too!
