A rare departure from the deep greens of the shade garden, the Japanese Painted fern has seemingly hand painted airy fronds. The silvery tips almost seem metallic against the reddish-purple veins and stems. It is truly a visual feast for the shaded areas of the garden. The coloration of the fronds make an excellent addition to cut floral arrangements. It will also add a unique twist to shady containers.

Other Names: Athyrium japonicum 'Pictum'; Black Lady Fern; Oriental Ladyfern; Deparia japonica
