Japanese Painted Fern

Unique Color Stands Out

  • Blue-green fronds with hints of silver
  • Grows 12-18 in. tall
  • Ideal for shade and woodland gardens
  • Deer resistant
Add interesting color and texture to your woodland and shade gardens with this showy, low-maintenance perennial. Japanese Painted Fern's blue-green fronds have hints of silver, giving it a metallic leaf color. While its light and lacy fronds make the plants appear delicate, ferns are very easy to grow. Growing 12-18 in. tall with a similar spread, Japanese Painted Fern is a great way to break up monotony in shaded spaces—and it's easy to fit into gardens, along walkways or in containers. Like other ferns, it's deer resistant. For best results, plant in full to partial shade. Zones 3-8.
