Add interesting color and texture to your woodland and shade gardens with this showy, low-maintenance perennial.

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.
