Flower Form: As it is a fern, the lady fern doesn’t have flowers. Ferns are plants that are far older than flowers, and they appeared during the Carboniferous Period. Still, the lady fern has beautiful, bright green fronds which grow to about eight inches to three feet long and two to 10 inches wide. When the fronds are lifted up the gardener will find sori along the underside. Sori are bunches of sporangia, which contain spores, a fern’s version of seeds. When the spores ripen, the sori burst open. The spores fall to the ground and then develop into tiny green plants that produce the male and female sex cells. These sex cells come together, and the fertilized egg then grows into the mature plant that people prize. Ferns are quite hardy and can grow with only minimal care, though they flourish in the kind of high humidity that can be found in a bathroom.

 

Lady Fern is a great to have around the house. The plant grows anywhere from 1 to 2 ft high. The plant likes full but prefers some shade if not complete shade. These ferns are hardy and robust but are not invasive and don’t spread very vast. These ferns look great along with a walkway area. The plant has very lush green foliage. This fern looks fantastic growing in a hanging basket or planter too.
