(Lady or Glade Ferns)
A genus of about 180 species most of which are medium to large sized ferns with stout, sometimes creeping rhizomes. Grow maintly in moist to wet places, usually in woods or thickets, even swamps where they receive only part sun. Suitable for the woodland garden, particularly as groundcovers as they will spread fairly rapidly because of their creeping rhizomes.
Found in moist woods, swamps and thickets, usually in subacid soil. A deciduous fern with bright green, lanceolate twice-pinnate fronds. It produces new fronds from early spring into mid to late summer. Lady fern is a slowly spreading species and grows best in light to moderate shade in moist, well drained soil, neutral to somewhat acidic. Will tolerate drier conditions, but fronds will not look as good in late summer. Spores wild collected in Ontario.
Fern spore germination instructions will be included.
