Athyrium niponicum var. pictum ‘Pearly White’ displays long, pointed, ivory-green triangular fronds that arch down in a pleasing cascade. Japanese Painted Fern is an elegant groundcover that spreads by rhizomes rather than forming a crown.
Ferns thrive in neutral to acidic, loose, richly organic soil. Excellent for mass plantings, rock gardens, containers, in woodlands and naturalized landscapes.
