The feathery fronds of this elegant fern emerge a rich burgundy colour in spring. Each frond delicately unfurls to create a lovely arching shape. As the foliage matures, it transforms to shimmering silver-green, but retains the dramatic purple midrib. Athyrium niponicum var. pictum 'Burgundy Lace' is a choice selection of Painted Lady Fern, which will form a lacy mound in damp, shaded locations. Perfect for edging woodland pathways, or dotting through the front of borders. Once established, this well behaved, deciduous fern will need virtually no maintenance. Height and spread: 45cm (18").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

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.
