Growing & Maintenance Tips for Athyrium filix-femina 'Lady in Red'

Easy to grow in part to full shade. Tolerates sun if the soil stays moist. Prefers well-drained soil with average moisture, but this fern tolerates drier soil than other ferns. Shelter from wind to protect fronds from breaking. If fronds become tattered, cut them to the ground and new fronds will emerge.
