Athyrium filix-femina ‘Victoriae’

Lady Fern

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 9.015.210

Lady Ferns were very popular in Victorian times, when hundreds of named forms existed. This unique selection forms a medium-sized clump of feathery green leaves, with the ends of each leaflet forked or crested into a tassel and arranged in an interesting criss-cross pattern that form "x’s". Plants prefer a woodland setting. Produced from tissue culture. Leaves may be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring. Plants are easily divided in spring, every 3-4 years.
