Description

Other - these are available in a 2L pot.

Height and Spread: 50cm x 50cm

Commonly known as the Painted Lady Fern, this rhizomatous perennial has stunning lance-shaped bipinnate fronds, which appear a dusty grey white colour tinged with purple.  

Native to North East Asia, it needs a shady but sheltered situation, preferring a soil with an acid to neutral pH.  Show it off by mixing it with contrasting ferns, especially Painted Lady Ferns (Athyrium) in borders and beds.
