Athyrium filix-femina or lady fern is common throughout the northern hemisphere and is found across Europe. The lady fern produces beautiful clumps with slightly arching fronds more than one metre in length.
The subspecies A. filix-femina subsp. angustum is native to North America from Greenland to North Carolina.
The Athyrium filix-femina subsp. angustum 'Lady in Red' cultivar spreads less than the type species (40 - 70 cm in height) and the light green fronds contrast with their burgundy-red frond ribs.
This fern has a graciously slender crown habit.
It is easy to grow and is very decorative in a shady border or woodland setting in moist, light, humus-rich soil. Deciduous and hardy.
