Athyrium otophorum


Eared Lady Fern

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 9.015.150


Also called Auriculate Lady Fern. This Japanese species is a nice selection for edging in the woodland or shady rock garden. Plants form a clump of arching triangular leaves, at first pale green with maroon stems, then changing to grey-green. Well behaved and non-spreading. Adapts well to containers. Old foliage should be trimmed to the ground in late winter. Plants benefit from a mulch of compost to help retain soil moisture. Deciduous.
