Beautiful Fern with Silver Highlights
The Japanese Painted Fern, is a low maintenance, deciduous fern with soft grayish-green and silvery dark maroon foliage.
It has a weeping habit and exquisite foliage that appears “painted” with silver.
It is easy to see why it was nominated Perennial of the Year for 2004. The Japanese Painted Fern has a plant spread of 24” and a height of 24”. It's a great addition to any shaded garden.
Japanese Painted Fern prefers full shade, however, small amounts of afternoon sun give the most vibrant color to its foliage. A well-drained area is best, but please don’t allow it to dry out.
The Japanese Painted Fern, is perfect as a border plant, planted near streams or ponds or as an accent plant. Best of all, it can help with erosion control, while presenting minimal wind resistance.
Its open, spreading texture and graceful appearance makes a wonderful companion to flowering perennials. It will contrast well with Hosta ‘Patriot’ or Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’.
