Limelight Lady Fern

Athyrium otophorum

Limelight Lady

Limelight Lady, Athyrium otophorum, the auriculate or eared lady fern, is a favorite for introducing subtle color to the garden’s palette. New growth is a soft lime green accented with raspberry stripes on the structure from the stem to the midribs. These lovely pastel highlights are maintained throughout the season and the fern may yet surprise growers by remaining evergreen in mild winters
