Plant Description

This fern is noted for its striking silver green fronds. In spring, its fiddleheads emerge with a rosy glow. Clumps normally grow to about 18 inches tall and do best in a little morning sun, and light shade thereafter in good soil. Some bright light is needed to bring out the beautiful coloration. Use the Japanese Painted Fern to add splashes of silver.
