Out of Season Ghost Fern

Ghost Fern

More eye-appeal than Japanese Painted Fern.


Stunning silvery color on new spring growth; hardens off over the summer to a still-striking blue-green set off by blue-maroon stems. When grown in shade, they seem to glow—you will attract many admirers! If grown in partial sun, they will stay lighter in color through the season. Mature at 2–3' tall. Potted. Zones 4–9.
  • Zone 4-9
  • Height 2-3 feet
  • Shade Required Shade, to partial shade.

Use them as a splash of greenery in cut-flower arrangements.
