This selection of the deer-resistant English lady fern has long been one of my pteridological favorites. The vigorously growing, deciduous clumper has petticoats on the end of each frond as well as the end of each pinnae (a frond equivalent of a leaflet). The 18" wide clump makes a great specimen plant in the woodland garden.
