Fern Athyrium Niponicum Pictum - 1 litre pot
Japanese Painted Fern
One of the most colourful ferns for the garden, the Japanese Painted Fern has silvery-grey fronds which are dusty purple towards the centre. They are set off by the purplish-red veins and stems.
This fern has a low and mounding habit, slowly spreading by rhizomes to form dense colonies. The fronds are positioned in a way that creates a horizontal layering effect much like you see in Dogwood trees.
Athyrium 'Pictum' grows best in moist soil in light to partial shade. Some sunlight is necessary to produce the vibrant colouring.
Grows to 30 cm in height
Requires low maintenance.
