lady fern

Athyrium filix-femina

Easily grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Tolerates drier soils than many other ferns. Will tolerate full sun but only if the soil is kept constantly moist. Shelter from wind to keep fronds from breaking.

This fern is native to rich moist woods, thickets, fields, meadows, and ravines throughout northern North America, Europe and Asia.
