Plant Description- The Lady Fern is a native perennial that grows swordlike foliage in wooded parts of the continental US and Alaska. It is a feathery species that has bright green, lush leaves known as fronds. Lady Ferns grow in circular clusters forming arch-shaped lacy fronds that thrive in damp, shady areas. Often cultivated for decoration, the Lady Fern also does well in shaded gardens. They are easy to care for and do well near evergreens. The Lady Fern grows abundantly with foliage that will last all year long and can provide a natural mulch through the winter season. In spring, after new growth has taken place, dead fronds will need to be pruned. The Lady Fern will shed its leaves annually, as well. The rhizomes and young leaves of the Lady Fern are edible once cooked.
