This elegant fern is has a graceful arching habit, forming a compact clump that requires virtually no maintenance once established. Perfect for brightening up shaded areas of the garden such as woodlands and damp borders. 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.

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.
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.
