Bright green, lacy fronds rise from the crown of this hard working Fern creating a fine textured, robust vase shaped plant that provides cover for ground frequenting birds and other landscape critters. This deciduous fern is vigorous, easy to grow and thrives in shady, moist areas, but can tolerate some sun and drier soils. Mass plantings of this delicate fern will make an outstanding groundcover in areas where other plants find it hard to survive and its fronds are perfect for use in fresh flower arrangements.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Athyrium filix femina

Plant in moist, well-drained soil for best performance, but it also tolerates slightly drier soils than many other ferns, too! Shelter from wind to protect fronds from breaking. Remove faded or tattered fronds as needed.
