Southern Lady Fern is a mounding native deciduous fern with delicate-looking lacy fronds that are light green.  Best grown in part shade and rich, acidic and moist well-drained soils.  Southern Lady Fern is one of the ferns that can tolerate full sun if given enough moisture but does not do well in full shade.  It can be an aggressive spreader in ideal conditions.  Deer resistant. 

*Deciduous ferns may still be dormant until late spring. This will appear that we've delivered a pot full of dirt however a healthy robust fern is awaiting inside.
