(Athyrium filix-femina)

Athyrium filix-femina Victoriae

More tolerant of sun and dry soil than most of its brethren and one of the easiest and showiest ferns you can grow, ‘Victoriae’ has been around since the mid 1800’s and was much prized by fanatical fern worshipers during the Victorian era. Growing about 2’ tall and wide, this elegant and low-maintenance beauty will make any space (indoors or out) feel like a lush oasis! Noticeably different from your average fern, its leaflets alternate their direction to create a pattern of “X’s” while you supply the “oooooooohs!” when you see the dense leafy “tassels” on the tips of the leaves! Provide excellent drainage and additional water in sunnier locations.
