Out of Season Ghost Fern
Pin It

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 bluegreen 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.
