Gorgeous fern! I planted 2 in a very shady location. Shade all day with only indirect brightness in the morning. These are the first ferns up in the spring (by about 3 weeks before others!) and are the showpieces of the areas until the pulmonaria and hosta catch up.

They stay lush and fresh all season.

I read info these are slow-moderate growers. I find moderate/average is more accurate. Definitely not slow.

Lady ferns are my favorites here in Minnesota and 'Lady in Red' is my favorite.

I bought one from a nursery and it's doing well in the front shady area. Now I think I have found another one, growing wild, elsewhere on the property. This one is huge.

Originally from a volunteer found at The New England Wildflower Society.
Slightly smaller than the common Athyrium filix-femina.
A slow spreader.
Place this one where the dark brilliant red-violet stipes (stems) can be seen and admired..
