Lady Fern

Soft Fronds with Well-Defined Texture and Color
It's hard to find good foliage that's happy and healthy without so much sunlight, but isn't so bland your shade garden gets overlooked—so here's something as beautiful as it is useful in the shade. Create an enchanting look in any woodland setting, with the soft emerald fronds and gentle texture of Lady Fern. This easy-to-grow perennial can be planted in a group as a graceful ground cover, as you can round out the shaded parts of your landscape with its feathered, finely cut foliage. You can also easily go out and cut a frond or two as a quick splash of greenery when you're creating a cut-flower arrangement—it is a lovely, accentuating green backdrop to add drama to your blooms.
