(Mature Size: 12-18"T x 12-18"W)
(Athyrium otophorum), the auriculate or eared lady fern, is a favorite for introducing subtle color to the garden’s palette.
New growth is a soft lime-green accented with raspberry stripes on the structure from the stem to the midribs.
Older fronds mature to green but new chartreuse growth creates a two-toned color to the clump.
These lovely pastel highlights are maintained throughout the season and the fern may yet surprise growers by remaining evergreen in mild winters.
The lime-green with red stems will shine when planted next to yellows and blues. Try planting this next to Hostas 'Prairie Moon' and 'Prairie Sky'.
