USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

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.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

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!
