Athyrium 'Frizelliae' is a selection of deciduous deer-resistant lady fern from Europe, and one of the most unique ferns available today. Found in 1857, in Ireland, in the garden of a Mrs. Frizell, the tatting fern is still known to most avid gardeners. The narrow (less than 1" wide) fronds of Athyrium 'Frizelliae' are arranged like fuzzy green, ear-like projections on both sides of the rachis (leaf center). I know this sounds really bizarre, but even normal folks are attracted to this unusual fern. Athyrium filix-femina 'Frizelliae' makes a great 1' tall x 18" wide specimen for a special spot in the woodland garden!
