Description
Lady Fern grows only about knee high at most, and is always beautiful with lighter green frilly ferns. The species needs shade, but is more tolerant of dry conditions than most ferns. Great for a shady wildflower garden.

    Comments about Lady Fern:

    It was planted near other ferns so received the same care as those. It hardly grew at all. Will be replacing it this fall when it gets cooler. I was very disappointed in the plant's performance.

        Comments about Lady Fern:

        I bought 5 of these ferns, and they came as small plants. The packaging was perfect for them and none were damaged in transport. One seemingly "died back" shortly after transplanting, but it grew back in a few weeks. All 5 ferns look wonderful and are growing great!

            Comments about Lady Fern:

            I ordered the Lady Fern last October. They came as
            bareroots so I planted them and waited for their
            Spring arrival. I was walking in the yard the other
            day and was delighted to see the red stems had popped
            up baring lime green leaves. Plants look very health
            and are doing well. Despite a drought in the area.
            I was very happy with the delivery and packaging of
            this product.
