Limelight Lady Fern

Ordering plants has concluded for the season. The selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2024 plant catalog will be available later this winter.

This clumping fern sports chartreuse new foliage on raspberry colored stems. As leaves age they mature to a deeper green giving the plant a unique two-toned appearance all summer. Grows best in average to moist rich soils in part to deep shade.
