Athyrium - Lady Ferns

Lady ferns (Athyrium filix-femina) and Japanese painted ferns (Athyrium niponicum) are among the most elegant plants for the shade garden. Cold-hardy and deciduous, they feature lacy fronds that arch and twist in a graceful manner. The lush green fronds of Lady Fern are in marked contrast to the sage green, silver, and burgundy tones of the colorful Athyrium niponicum (Japanese painted ferns). Easy to grow, they require a moist soil, very little care and a place of honor in your garden or containers.
