Athyrium niponicum var. pictum


Japanese Painted Fern

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 9.015.100


One of the easiest and most rewarding hardy ferns, this delightful selection performs well in any rich, evenly moist soil. It forms a compact clump of fronds, dark green in colour, overlaid in olive and silvery-pewter, with contrasting burgundy stems. Terrific for edging the shade border, in the rock garden, on in mixed containers. Deciduous. Leaves may be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring. Plants are easily divided in spring, every 3 to 4 years.
