Athyrium niponicum var. pictum 'Metallicum'
The Japanese painted lady ferns are one of the most exquisite plants in the fern world. 'Metallicum' has to be one of the most striking. Strong silver fronds with red brush strokes down the veins. This is a deciduous fern that completely disappears in the winter.
Up to 30cm
Up to 45cm
Like all Athyrium, 'Metallicum' needs a shaded spot with moist but not waterlogged soil. Will tolerate partial shade, but not midday sun. Great for woodland gardens, stumperies, pots, shady parts of herbaceous borders.
Water well to establish, clear away dead material in the winter. If possible mark its location during the winter (they disappear completely and can easily be trodden on when emerging).
This plant will be sent out ready to be planted straight from it's 9cm pot.
