The Japanese painted fern, also known as Athyrium niponicum pictum, is a beautiful and versatile perennial fern. It is known for its delicate, silver-green fronds with dark red central ribs. The fronds can grow up to 24 inches tall and wide, and they form a graceful arching mound.

Japanese painted fern is a relatively easy-care plant. It requires moderate watering, especially during the first year after planting. Japanese painted fern should be fertilized in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. To maintain Japanese painted fern, simply remove any dead or dying fronds.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
