Buy Athyrium filix-femina lady fern: A delicate, graceful fern

  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is the lady fern, with graceful, bright green, filigree-like leaves. One of our recommended plants, it looks great planted in bold swathes with other shade-loving plants in a sheltered, shady woodland edge, shrub or mixed border.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole. In cold areas in late autumn protect the crown of the plant with a dry mulch of straw or bracken.
