From a volunteer at The New England Wildflower Society comes a hot new selection of our deer-resistant native lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina var. angustum forma rubellum) that's all the rage. The lacy, light green foliage is held upright on dark, brilliant red-violet stipes (fern stems). Each plant of this slowly spreading fern should spread to 3' in 5 years. This deciduous, easy-to-grow fern makes a great blending plant for hosta and other bold-leaf plants in the woodland garden.

Discovered in Vermont, 'Lady in Red' is a superior selection of a hardy Lady Fern. This upright fern has bright red stems that complement the green foliage. It makes an ideal cold-hardy landscape fern for a shady or woodland area. Hardy in zones 3-8, 'Lady in Red' is a reliable, but attractive, hardy plant for a shady setting with moist, rich soil.

We applaud the New England Wildflower Society for discovering this fantastic sturdy form of the native Lady Fern, which roams the eastern and central areas of our country. Forging an elegant vase shape, uniquely colored red-violet stems are hard to miss and look especially vibrant against artful light green, lacy foliage. The dense deciduous clump maintains a fresh appearance as new delicate-looking leaves unfurl throughout the growing season. Unfazed by deer, rabbits and poor clay soil, easily maintained 'Lady in Red' spreads gradually and lends bold colorful accents to perennial plantings or woodland gardens.
