Description

 Lady Fern is a fern plant that can grow up to 2 meters tall

The Lady Fern is a fern plant that can grow up to 2 meters tall; Its scientific name is Athyrium filix – Femina. This plant has diamond-shaped fronds which taper at both ends. These fronds (compound leaves) are made up of 20-30 leaflets called pinna located on both sides of the front. This pinna taper towards the end. Underneath the leaflets are sori which have sporangia for reproduction. The leaves of the lady fern are generally yellow-green or light green, but they may turn reddish-brown as seasons progress. It is a deciduous fern that sheds its leaves in the first frost.

 The natural habitat of the Lady Fern is swampy and moist areas. This plant can be found along river streams, in meadows, and in wet forests. In homes, this plant will love areas that have moist shades. It may be potted or grown directly on land. Though this fern prefers shaded moist soil, it is tolerant of dry soil and direct sunlight. Its propagation is slow, but it may overgrow if left unchecked for an extended period.

It is also known for providing good solid cover, which prevents moisture loss; The root-like stem and the plant roots are claimed to have medicinal value. They have been associated with healing digestive tract issues, cough, and breathing problems. People indigenous to the Pacific Northwest used the Lady Fern fronds as mats for drying berries.

Growing Lady Ferns is easy. These plants will do well in that shady garden area where not many plants thrive. Keep the soil wet and add some compost to encourage healthy growth. Once planted, only minimal care is needed. Lady fern is resistant to most pests and diseases. Spring is the time to harvest and propagate the Lady Fern. Look for fiddleheads that appear as sprouts next to the fronds. Cut the fiddlehead near the soil and remove its sheat. Dig the plant out, cut the rhizomes, and replant them to propagate.
