The bright green, lacy fronds of Lady Fern look wonderful in the shade of mature trees or between established shrubs. They are vigorous and fast-growing, maintenance and pest-free. They love the full shade and fertile, rich, moist, well-draining soil. Lady Fern is clump-forming and can create large colonies if it has good conditions. It tolerates full sun if the soil is consistently moist.
