Fern - Japanese Painted

Price : $4.97
Type: Perennial
Light: Partial sun and shade

Perennial Plant of the year 2004.


The wide range of colors in this fern make it a garden designer's dream. Very attractive foliage that has everything from silver to gray, burgundy to red, greens, purples and even black variegation while the stems are maroon.


Colors get showier with each year of maturity and will brighten up any shady corner.
Japanese painted fern provides a nice contrast to other shade-loving perennials such as hosta, astilbe and coral bells. Thrives best when you add 2-3 inches of compost or peat moss to the beds each spring or fall.


The colors are best in the morning sun or afternoon shade. Fronds may be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring.
