Lady Fern: Athyrium filix-femina


Lady Fern: Athyrium filix-femina (Athyrium filix-femina (Lady fern))

We are mostly Ostrich fern or Alaska fern Matteuccia struthiopteris in the interior if any fern. The lady fern is more full and more beautifully shaped I think. This is found in profusion throughout Southcentral and Southeast Alaska.

Nice looking fern and it is certainly healthier & fuller looking than my lady fern, which is sorta scraggly even after 3 years. It's never really done well. I wonder if it's one of those plants that prefers it cold?

Nice to see it in the wild,i grow it here and it needs shade from hot sun.

TY. Most of our natives prefer a chill in winter so I would';t be surprised about that Lauram. The angle of the earth towards the sun from here doubles the atmosphere so we get little red and blue spectrum light, just the light for a fern to flourish. That may be a second factor to the size and beauty of these here.
