More commonly known as the Japanese Painted Fern. Has superb silver fronds with purple-red mid-ribs that grow into a soft, arching rosette. Can be grown in light to full shaded areas where soils are rich in humus, moist but free-draining. Will not tolerate dry soils. Great for underplanting trees and shrubs and for use around the edges of a pond.
They grow to approximately 30cm to 45cm in height and width.
