Japanese Painted Fern
All of the Beauty, None of the Bother
Just one of these striking ferns is not going to be enough for your shade garden!As an added bonus, this beauty does not spread like some other ferns, so there is no need for a large open space.
Color Your Landscape in Rich Hues
Prized for their beautiful foliage, the Red Beauty Japanese Painted Fern is going to add texture and interest to any landscape with its dark blue-green center and metallic silver variegation at the edges. This fern also boasts burgundy highlights in its stems and veins contrasting beautifully with the bright silver edges. Expect colorful, vibrant foliage from early spring until frost.
This is one of the more hardy ferns around. This rapidly growing red beauty makes excellent ground cover in moist, shady areas. Or accent areas in your garden that need a burst of red to bring a look together; the graceful appearance and open texture blend wonderfully with flowering perennials. Use as a border, in containers or include in indoor arrangements.
Like most ferns, the Red Beauty prefers the shade but can handle the sun with moist soil. It grows 1-2 feet high and spreads 16-18 inches wide. The radiant leafs leave behind a spicy scent that is as bold as the burgundy that adorns them.
