description for "Ferns: Athyrium nipponicum 'Pictum'"
Japanese Painted Fern has a spreading habit. A most unusually colored fern. This type has recently received some much-deserved attention. The fronds are muted grey-green, contrasting sharply with purplish-mahogany stems. There is a faintly silvery sheen on the whole plant. This Japanese native is best grown in light shade with rich, moisture-retentive, but not soggy, soil where it will reproduce quickly. Highly recommended.
