Description

Lady Fern is a shade-loving fern with fine-textured, lacy, light green fronds. Normally 1-3 feet tall, it can occasionally reach 5 feet in height; while growth is slow and generally compact, it can spread 3-7 feet if left unchecked. Lady Fern prefers full shade to dappled sunlight and rich, moist, well-drained soil. Popular for its easy maintenance, Lady Fern is an attractive addition to shade gardens, rock gardens, and waterside plantings. It provides excellent cover for wildlife due to its height and colony-forming habit.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
