This hot, new, vegetatively propagated selection of the deciduous, deer-resistant southern lady fern was selected by Angelo and Carol Randaci of Kentucky's The Fernery. Each 1' wide clump of light green foliage is composed of 18" long arching fronds, each ending with a huge petticoat. I don't know about you, but I'm all for encouraging more petticoats in the garden.
