    Package arrived earlier than expected. Flat rate shipping box was hap-hazardly taped and not completely closed. There was no packing material in the box. Plants were in a ziplock bag with the name of the product written outside of it. Roots look to be in great shape. One piece of paper was included showing a pic of what the shipped product looks like when it arrives and after it starts growing. There were no directions for planting. How deep? How far apart? On the fence about reordering from this supplier. Also, WAY too many emails are sent advert products, sales, etc.

    The name truly fits because it just flows well and looks good when growing.

Lady Fern - Athyrium felix-femina  For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Lady Fern is a perennial native to the Northern Hemisphere that is marked by its bright green fronds and lace-like texture. This circumglobal plant is most often found around the US and Alaska in both Midlands and lowlands. Its name was derived from its inconspicuous reproductive organs, as well as its soft and dainty appearance. This common Fern is a cespitose, which means that its fronds grow up from the center in a cluster. The Lady Fern is typically used to accentuate other botanicals with its vibrant presence. Since its growth is both slow and steady, the Lady Fern is considered low-maintenance and easy to care for.

When seen in the wild, the Lady Fern frequently sits alongside streams due to the moist, fertile soil surrounding the area. The elegant perennial thrives in full to partial shade, so it is best suited for shade gardens and similar environments. The plant can still live in direct sunlight, but its soil needs to be kept continuously moist for it to remain healthy. Its ability to flourish in little to no sunlight makes the Lady Fern even more comfortable to maintain over time. Aside from keeping its soil consistently moistened, the only maintenance that the Lady Fern requires is being replanted and re-positioned each spring.

The bright leaves that sprout out of each frond are not the only characteristic that gives the Lady Fern its illuminating aesthetic. Each stalk comes in a gradient of green, purple, and red hues. These stalks contribute to the plant's height, along with the fronds that grow up to three feet in length. Each frond comes with anywhere from twenty to thirty leaflets that grow in parallel directions. These fronds are known to be quite delicate, so it is essential to shade them from high winds that could potentially cause them to break prematurely.
