Athyrium nipponicum var. pictum
Japanese Painted Fern
This exquisite fern is ideal in part sun locations. Pastel foilage reflects a lot of light and is therefore very bright in a shady location. Height and spread of 1.5 to 2'. Plant in a part sun to shade siting in a rich soil with good drainage. In our heavy clay soil you should amend your backfill with peat or mushroom compost. Do not allow this fern to dry out. Highly deer resistant.
