The Japanese Painted Fern, scientifically known as Athyrium niponicum var. pictum, is a popular deciduous fern prized for its distinctive, variegated fronds with silvery-green and burgundy tones. This fern variety thrives in shaded or partly shaded areas and is an excellent choice for adding texture and color to woodland gardens, shaded borders, or containers. It offers a unique and elegant presence.

Care Guide

Japanese Painted Fern prefers partial to full shade and well-drained, consistently moist soil. Regular watering is essential to maintain soil moisture. Pruning is minimal and primarily for removing dead fronds. This fern variety boasts striking silver-green fronds with burgundy-red accents, offering a sophisticated and colorful addition to shaded or woodland gardens. Adequate mulching helps retain moisture, creating an ideal environment for growth.
