Lady Fern - Athyrium Felix-Femina
Lady Ferns are a beautiful species of fern known for their feathery textured leaves. They are a lovely shade of pale green with the intricate gold lacy pattern on the outer side of their leaves. Lady Ferns are perennials, so they are a long-time investment to beautify your yard, and you won't have to worry about replanting them next year. They grow to about two to five feet high and each plant can run up to three feet in length. While it can survive in sunny, dry climates, this US native would make the perfect addition to a dimly lit, damp patch of garden and it thrives in a moist environment.
This lovely plant is very easy to take care of, and with a lot of patient love can produce a nice colony of Lady Ferns. They are quite low maintenance as well and do not struggle with insect or disease issues. Just plant your Lady Ferns in a damp, dimly lit environment that has plenty of porous soil and watch them grow! They would be a perfect addition to a rock garden, near a small body of water, or shaded area of your garden. While their growing speed is quite slow, the bloom will be well worth the wait. They are quite popular in landscaping as well because they make a great addition to shady areas and work as an excellent accent for brightly colored plants; plucking the stems of Lady Ferns could also make a gorgeous accent to a bouquet of flowers; the bright green would pop nicely against vibrant reds or yellows. Lady Ferns are just what your garden needs to add an extra burst of color in shady areas to break up shades of brown and gray, so invest in a Lady Fern... you won't regret it.
