Lady Fern - Athyrium Filix Femina
Lady Fern - Athyrium Felix Femina is a feathery species of fern with long fronds. It is native to the northern hemisphere. The Lady Fern is often grown for decoration and thrives in damp and shady woodland environments. It has an elegant and graceful appearance and its reproductive structures are concealed inconspicuously on the frond. The Lady Fern is typically divided into two species, the narrow lady fern, and the southern lady fern. The southern lady ferns base has a broader fond. Both species have fronds that come out of a central point as a clump.
