Japanese Painted Fern is a beautiful deciduous fern with a hand-painted appearance.  The arching grey-green fronds are highlighted with silver giving it a metallic sheen, and often flushed with burgundy in the center that matches the stems.  Best frond color in part shade and rich, moist well-drained soils.  Deer resistant.  

*Deciduous ferns may still be dormant until late spring. This will appear that we've delivered a pot full of dirt however a healthy robust fern is awaiting inside.
