In stunning painterly strokes, olive-greens, blues and metallic silvers are splashed across the elegant tapered fronds. garnet-colored midribs etch a fervid counterpoint. Renown for its unwavering hardiness, the ever popular japanese painted fern slowly spreads to form a low growing, textural clump that gracefully weeps, softening the edges along paths, containers or the rockery and electrifying the shadows with Carex 'Island Brocade', Brunnera 'Jack Frost' and Pulmonaria longifolia ssp. cevennensis. Tolerant of some drought once established, this refined deciduous fern fancies shade, moisture and well draining, humus-rich soil.
