Painted Fern - Athyrium Niponicum
The Japanese Painted Fern gets its name because of its beautiful silver and burgundy markings.
The Japanese painted fern features unique silver and burgundy markings along its attractive, robust fronds. The name derives from its “painted” appearance which resembles Japanese traditional art. This shade-tolerant groundcover can be used to enhance the borders along walkways and in flower beds as a textural element that holds its color through the fall.
Soil requirements are typical, with the Japanese Painted Fern - along with its popular variety the Lady Fern - needing moist, well-drained land. Can tolerate some morning sun and holds well in short-lived drought conditions. An easy-to-grow plant that needs little maintenance once established.
