Athyrium filix-femina

Athyrium filix-femina
lady fern; tatting fern

Common name lady fern; tatting fern
Family dryopteridaceae
Life cycle perennial fern (Z4-8)
Size 24-36"
Light part-full shade

One of only a few ferns we've tried to grow. Deciduous, native to the US. The one we're currently growing is the variety named 'Frizelliae', with curiously shaped fronds.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
