We are pleased to finally introduce our Wake County, NC selection of our native southern lady fern, Athyrium filix-femina. We selected and named Athyrium filix-femina 'Red Neck Girl' as a heat-loving counterpart to the northern-selected Athyrium 'Lady in Red'. For us, Athyrium 'Red Neck Girl', makes a very vigorous clump of 30" tall fronds, each held on a bright red stipe (leaf stalk). The finely-cut frond looks great against the red stalk...we think you'll really enjoy having this red neck girl in your garden. Average to slightly moist garden soils are fine.
