Burgundy Lace Japanese Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum 'Burgundy Lace'))

8.00

This selected form of the Japanese Painted Fern has particularly deep purplish-burgundy new growth, especially if given adequate light while emerging.  As the fronds mature the margins present a chalky silver-grey that lights up in the shade, while the stipes and base of the pinnae tend to keep their dark burgundy tones.  Placement in garden beds under the canopy of deciduous trees or shrubs is ideal to ensure bright light for a good color flush at the beginning of the season, and as the canopy leafs out it provides the protective shade these ferns require later in the heat of the summer.  As with other Japanese Painted Ferns, they prefer even moisture and don't like to be too dry during the warmth of the growing season.

Frond Condition: Deciduous

Mature Size: 12", horizontally arching habit, slowly colonizing
