Hi, I'm Lady Fern! I am a classic and timeless addition to any garden or landscape, and I'm best known for my arching green foliage that adds a fine texture to garden beds. I am also known for being very thirsty - I grow best in moist to wet soil - I will even tolerate some standing water! I am very low maintenance when it comes to upkeep and pruning, but I can be fussy about soil and prefer rich, acidic soils. Since I am common in a forest or woodland setting, I will feel happiest and most at in a shady and moist area of your garden.

  • Lacy Foliage: Lady Fern is a beautiful plant that features delicate, lacy fronds that can add texture and interest to any garden or landscape. Its foliage is a bright green colour that can provide a pop of colour to shady areas.
  • Shade Tolerance: Lady Fern is a shade-loving plant that can thrive in areas with little to no direct sunlight. This makes it an excellent option for adding greenery to shady areas of your garden or landscape.
  • Low Maintenance: Lady Fern is a relatively low maintenance plant that requires minimal pruning and watering once established. It is also relatively pest and disease-resistant, making it an easy-to-care-for option for gardeners who want a plant with attractive foliage that can thrive in a variety of environments.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.
  • Maintenance: Ensure well-draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Mulch around the plant to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Watch out for pests like slugs and snails.
  • Pruning: Cut back all fronds to within a few inches of the ground before the first hard frost in the fall.
  • (Optional): Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears. Alternatively, top-dress with compost or well-rotted manure in the spring.

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
