Athyrium angustum forma rubellum Lady in Red™


Northern Lady Fern

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 9.015.350


This selection of the Northern Lady Fern features vibrant burgundy stems contrasting beautifully with the lacy green fronds. Easy to grow preferring rich, medium to wet, well-drained soil. Terrific in containers, as a ground cover and for woodland gardens. Frond colour is best when planted in part shade and the red stem colour is most vibrant after the second winter dormancy. Deciduous. Leaves may be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring. Plants are easily divided in spring, every 3 to 4 years. Result of tissue culture from a plant found by the New England Wildflower Society in the woodlands of Massachusetts.
