(Mature Size: 24-36"T x 24-30"W)
(Athyrium angustum forma rubellum)
Discovered in Vermont by John Lynch of the New England Wildflower Society, 'Lady in Red' is a superior selection of the native northern Lady Fern.
Glassy red stems contrast pleasantly with the lime green leafage and are especially brilliant when highlighted with back lighting.
Try planting this hosta next to a large gold hosta to get great color contrast.
The color on this deciduous form improves with age and does not fully display its beauty until it has been through a cold winter. High nutrient fertilizer intensifies the color but takes away from its luminescence.
This is an easily-grown 2 to 3 foot cold hardy fern, and is suitable for Zones 3-8 where it is happy in light shade.
