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.

Comments about American Meadows Red-stemmed Lady Fern Lady in Red:
This was the perfect plant to put in the shady area of my yard.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
