Vibrant burgundy color runs through the veins creating a striking contrast with fine-textured, lacy green fronds on this native cultivar, Lady In Red™ Fern. A volunteer “nativar” selection found by the New England Wildflower Society in Massachusetts, this perennial fern brings a new and enticing feel to the tried and true Lady Fern.


2020 – Slow start in mid-April. Nice new fronds.

2019 – Bought at Végétal Passion and planted in 2-litre pots hung on the trellis under the pergola to experiment with a “wall of ferns”.
