(Mature Size: 12-18"T x 18-24"W)
(Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum'), wins popularity contests everywhere. The North American Perennial Plant Association deservedly named Japanese Painted Fern as the Perennial Plant of the Year in 2004, the only fern to have been so honored.
The colorful fronds are a collage of varying green shades blended with burgundy and gray. Whirls of deciduous foliage hold this unique and decorative appearance throughout the summer.
Frond sizes and coloring can be highly variable. It is best displayed in filtered shade as direct sun will burn the foliage.
Plant it as a focal point in your Zone 4 to 9 gardens where it will gradually spread to form an elegant ground cover.
The silver and burgundy colors of this fern contrast beautifully with all different hostas. Try mixing this fern in between some blue, green and gold hostas.
