Lady in Red Fern will have you singing to your shade garden enchanted by its beauty. Lady in Red Fern (Athyrium filix-forma) is grown for its quintessentially ferny foliage that will captivate you with uniquely red stems. This perennial foliage plant will be lush and brilliant green in your shade or part shade garden and can even be grown indoors as a houseplant!

Low-growing, shade and moisture loving, Lady in Red Fern is Native to North America. Use this plant in garden borders, to add foliage interest to containers, or add it to your indoor jungle as a potted houseplant. Lady in Red Fern is easy to grow and resistant to rabbits.

Lady in Red Fern Care

Choose a partial shade to fully shaded location with acidic to neutral soil, not overly rich or fertile soil. Lady in Red Fern is perennial from zone 3a to 8b. Deadheading is not needed and the plant requires little maintenance throughout the season. Water well until established.

Leave the foliage fronds to overwinter. Plants can be cleaned up in early spring to encourage new growth. Do not fertilize or do so very sparingly and keep the plant moist. If kept indoors as a houseplant, Lady in Red Fern will benefit from regular waterings and access to a humidifier.

Lady in Red Fern Spacing

This plant can reach 30 – 36 inches in height and will spread up to 24 inches. In mass plantings, plant up to 24 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
