2004 Japanese Painted Fern
Botanical Name: Athyrium nipponicum ‘Pictum'
Super hardy and easy to grow, this gorgeous fern performs best in a rich, evenly moist soil. The
compact clump of fronds are olive green with a silver overlay and red stems. Grown in partial to full shade, it will reach a height of 12 to 20 inches with a spread of 12 to 16 inches. I appreciate the unique beauty of this fern so much that I’ve laid on on my belly to view it at its own level. Will gently colonize in its’ preferred growing conditions.
