Wooden Surface

Athyrium angustum (filix-femina)

The Northern Lady Fern is an elegant, lacy fern that is easily found in the woods of New England.


Shorter than many other ferns, this sweet plant prefers shade but can tolerate more sun so long as the soil is well watered. Choose this lady for a shady spot by a pond, or in a wet area of your landscape.


Pair clumps of the Lady fern with tiarella cordifolia, Symphyotrichum lateriflorum (calico aster), and a ground cover of wild ginger for a perfect woodland garden.
