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 American Meadows Lady Fern:

        Chose this & Christmas Ferns because they're on the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service "Native Plants for Wildlife Habitat and Conservation Landscaping: Chesapeake Bay Watershed" list. Planting in a wooded spot in the garden that backs up to a parking lot. Only saying 4 stars now since they've just started - will let you know how well they take in the long run....

          Comments about American Meadows 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.

              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 American Meadows 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.
