Athyrium niponicum var. pictum Often difficult to locate and always in demand, this Japanese Painted Fern is a treasure for the partly- to fully-shaded garden. Just 18 inches tall, it bears lush, finely-cut foliage of rich green, each frond marked with a central stem of bright crimson and silvery markings. The effect in a dark corner of the garden is quite dramatic! Excellent in containers as well. 1-quart container. Z 3-9 | part/full shade | H: 18”, W: 18”

Athyrium filix-femina 'Frizelliae'
Instead of the usual airy fronds, every stem of the deciduous Tatting Fern is “beaded” with closely-set, rounded pinnae that glow like jewels in the partly-shaded garden. A splendid contrast to Hosta, Brunnera, and other ferns, this one-of-a-kind Lady Fern is easy to grow and quite tolerant of heat and humidity. Lovely as filler in indoor arrangements, too! 1-quart container. Z 5-9| part/full shade| H: 12-18”, W: 18-20”

Athyrium niponicum var. pictum
A lovely ethereal plant that is an oldfashioned favorite. It needs deep, limeenriched, humusy soil that does not become dried out.

Widely grown in Victorian gardens, Ferns are enjoying a renaissance of popularity.
