More Information

Description The artistic Japanese painted fern (Athyrium nipponicum) will make your garden feel like a painted mural. The distinctive soft gray leaves with maroon midribs add dimension to your understory.  Silver hues pick up light in the shade. It clearly earned its place as the 2004 Perennial Plant of the Year! This plant only looks hard to care for. It is easily grown in rich, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade, but is more accepting of sun if the site is consistently moist. The colors will develop the best when grown in light shade. Details Botanical name: Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum'
Common name: Japanese painted fern, oriental ladyfern
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun), shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 12-18" X 24"
Foliage color: Soft gray, silver, maroon
Uses: Accents, border, container, ground cover, small spaces, specimen, underplanting, waterside.
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in organically rich, moist, well-drained soil.
Light: Part-sun to 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, but soil must not be allowed to dry out.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft apart
Fertilizing: Annual application of compost. Inorganic fertilizers may burn roots.
Winterizing: Leaves should be trimmed to the ground in late fall or early spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Very low maintenance. Trim leaves in the late fall or early spring. Plants can be propagated by division as desired.

Beautiful!

The Japanese Painted Fern arrived in great condition. It was packed well and was a very healthy size upon receipt. Unfortunately, I let it get too dry before I planted it in the garden, and all of the foliage died. I decided I would water it well hoping the rootstock survived and plant it in my garden thinking maybe it would live. It did! It is currently filling out beautifully and looks wonderfully happy in its new home. Thank you, GGP, for another healthy plant strong enough to survive my lack of care!

I hope they pull through!

Arrived yesterday 3 showed up looking ok. One was totally wilted.
Unboxed them, watered them and placed them in my mud room out of direct sunlight. Today they are all wilted. Hoping they make a comeback :( any tips or suggestions to save them would be helpful

2 of 3 were great!

One of the plants was very dried out looking and wilted. The soil in the pot was dry, while the others were moist and heavy. The outer packing was really well done and very protective. My only complaint is that all the plants that I have ordered from GG have plastic wrapped around the stem and the pot that is very hard to remove without damaging the plant. Maybe not use that heavy duty clip to hold it in place? Takes scissors to cut the plastic and it still can't be removed from the pot.

So far, so good

The painted ferns arrived healthy and happy. In a shady part of our yard yard they seem to be thriving. It has been raining alot recently so they are getting plenty of moisture in our well-draining, sandy soil (zone 8a coastal NC). Look forward to next spring to see if they will spread a little. It is had to beat Great Garden’s plants.
