Does anyone have experience with this Fern? It's in the Lady Fern family, Athyrium Frizellaie. I thought it looked very interesting so I snapped it up. I hope it will survive the winter here in zone 3!

Oh, that is an interesting fern! It IS supposed to be able to tolerate down to zone 3. Good luck with it!

Thank you Woofie. I'll post a pic next year if it survives.

You might want to try to give it some protection this first winter, to help it get established. I'd never seen this fern before, so I had to look it up. All the sites I looked at showed it being hardy to zone 3; hope they're right! Heh, that little rascal may have to go on my wish list. Smiling
