Lady in Red Fern

If you're just looking at the leaves, you'd think Lady in Red has got all the same benefits of any fern. It is useful in a large mixed fern planting that covers a shaded spot in soft green color. What really makes this cultivar stand out is the unusually colored stems. They're sleek and red, a striking contrast among all that shade foliage. You can naturalize Lady in Red Fern, make it a ground cover or plant it as a border accent. It grows easily in moist soil and can even be used around the edge of a water garden. Deer tend not to bother this fern. Athyrium filix-femina
