This easy-to-grow, deer-resistant native fern is adaptable to moist sunny gardens as well as dry shade. Athyrium filix-femina ssp. asplenioides represents the southeastern US form of the popular lady fern. The 8" wide, upright, light green fronds can reach 2' tall. This clumper is great when planted in mass as a backdrop for hostas in the woodland garden.
