Description

Plant the Red-Stemmed Lady Fern in any shady spot of the garden. It creates a dramatic backdrop for your favorite flowering plants and is the perfect companion for a shady wildflower planting. This variety grows to be about 24-36” tall and is a foliage plant all season long.

Here, we have an all-time favorite actually made more beautiful! Lady Fern is one of our loveliest, not-too-big native ferns, with complex frilly fronds. Its always been loved as a companion with shade-loving perennials. Now, suddenly, thanks to some brilliant hybridizer, Lady in Red brings us the same beauty with shiny lipstick red stems. Great for the flower garden!
