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.
