Quick Overview:

‘Lady in Red’ is a cultivar that typically grows slightly smaller (18-30″ tall) and features elliptic lacy light green fronds with contrasting burgundy-red stipes. Synonymous with Athyrium angustum f. rubellum ‘Lady in Red’. Athyrium filix-femina, commonly called lady fern, is a deciduous fern that features lacy-cut, 2 to 3-pinnate or pinnatifid, finely-divided, lanceolate, light green fronds which grow in a dense circular shuttlecock-like clump to 2-3′ tall. Each frond (leaf) has twenty to thirty pairs of elliptic non-opposite pinna (leaflets) with narrow pointed tips. Each pinna is divided into deeply-cut lanceolate to oblong pinnules (subleaflets). Sori and indusia are found on the undersides of the pinnules. This is a circumglobal species which is found in rich moist woods, thickets, fields, meadows and ravines throughout northern North America, Europe and Asia.

Description

Easily grown in humusy, organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Best sited in sheltered locations. Soil must not be allowed to dry out. Naturalizes well by creeping rhizomes and can form colonies in optimum growing conditions.
