How to Grow
Plant Athyrium in sheltered, dappled shade in fertile, moist, acid or neutral, soil. Athyrium ferns prefer a soil that is rich in organic matter so add some well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting. Japanese painted ferns require a reliably moist or boggy soil. Grow them in bog gardens or in the damp soil at the edge of ponds.
More Info
Feed and water ferns regularly until they are fully established. Apply mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the crown of each plant in spring.
