Lady Fern (Athyrium filix-femina) is a widely adaptable, fast growing fern, perfect for planting on wooded slopes to help prevent erosion. Plant it in masses, or mixed with other woodland wildflowers and sedges in the shade garden. Best grown in rich, medium moisture, it does tolerate dry soils better than many other ferns. A setting that is sheltered from wind will protect fronds from breaking. Divide clumps in spring every few years to reposition crowns at the soil level.
