Athyrium niponicum 'Regal Red'

Japanese Painted Fern
A striking selection of Japanese Painted Fern, with dark violet red interior coloring on each frond which contrasts with silvery leaf edges. The pinnules twist to give the fronds a "ruffled" look. Easy and more tolerant of drier soils than many ferns. Combines wonderfully with Heuchera, Epimedium and Hardy Begonia. Grows 18" tall and wide.
