More Information

Description A must-have for your fern collection! This new perennial, the first fern from Proven Winners, tops its each of its colorful fronds with a curly little flourish known as a crest. 'Crested Surf' Japanese painted fern (Athyrium niponicum) looks like some kind of magical seaweed - but this plant will be right at home in your shade garden. Sage-green and white leaflets are neatly arranged along a purple stem, a color cue that makes it ideal for pairing with plum-colored heuchera. We've never seen anything quite like it and are so excited to be able to offer it this year. Details Botanical name: Athyrium niponicum 'Crested Surf'
Patent #: 33,057
Common name: Crested Japanese painted fern
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Shade (<4 hours sun), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 20-22" X 28-30"
Foliage color: Sage green, silver, and purple
Season of Interest: Summer
Uses: Shade gardens, woodland gardens, fern collections
How To Grow Soil: Well-drained but rich in organic matter.
Light: Part shade to full shade - Best silvery frond color occurs in light shade. Too much sun often results in a bleaching of the attractive frond colors.
Water: Tolerates more soil dryness than some other ferns in this genus, but soil must not be allowed to dry out.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft apart
Fertilizing: None required.
Winterizing: Nothing special required.
Maintenance & pruning: The previous season's leaves should be trimmed to the ground in early spring. Do this before new growth begins, or the process will be tricky to do well.

These are beautiful and are growing enthusiastically.

Everything I have purchased (which is a lot) from Great Garden Plants has been wonderful, with the exception of one plant which was promptly replaced. The plants are all well packed and have well developed root systems. They get two days of watering in my garage before they are planted and all are thriving.

Brave Little Fern

The neighbor's chickens almost destroyed my new fern, but I nursed it back and am delighted to report that it is thriving! Lots of new shoots; looks fascinating.

Beautiful addition to the garden

So glad I ordered three of these, as I love the extra color variance these ferns bring to the garden. Most of my shade plants are a similar green foliage, but these ferns are the perfect contrast.
