Lady Fern is a deciduous fern with an extensive fern. This low maintenence plant does very well in moist, well draining, shade areas of a garden or landscape. It will tolerate dry soils better than most ferns and will also tolerate some sun. The light green color and upright growth can make this plant a great native option.
