Athyrium ‘Wildwood Twist’


Hybrid Painted Fern

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 9.015.330


An interesting hybrid fern, similar to the Japanese Painted Fern but slightly taller. This forms a midsized mound of silvery-grey fronds, with highlights of mint green. Excellent as a specimen, or for massing. A terrific contrast to bold leaved plants such as Hosta. Foliage is deciduous in winter: leaves should be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring. Plants are easily divided in spring, ever 3 to 4 years. Plants will appreciate an evenly moist, rich soil. An organic mulch is recommended to help keep soil moist.
