Athyrium filix-femina 'Victoriae -Very unique fronds with narrow leaflets that are crested at the ends, very unusual and sure to generate conversation in the garden

Athyrium filix-femina - Lady Fern The lacy 30-36in fronds of this deciduous native species unfurl pale green and turn darker as the season progresses. Equally happy in full sun or shade and not fussy about soil conditions, though it draws the line at swamps and deserts.

Considered the "Queen of Ferns," this exquisite selection of the deciduous, deer-resistant lady fern was the pride and joy of the Victorian fern craze. The narrow pinnae of Athyrium 'Victoriae' are like little green boomerangs. As they are attached to each side of the stem, the effect is a three-dimensional stunner in the woodland garden. At the end of each pinna, the fronds are crested, adding to the exquisite beauty. For us, Athyrium 'Victoriae' forms an 18" tall x 18" wide clump.
