Athyrium niponicum ‘Pictum Regal Red’ is an outstanding painted fern selected by Casa Flora for its reliable intense color. This is a deep burgundy form framed with silver which gets even more beautiful as it ages. In addition although deciduous, this cultivar holds its 8 to 20 inch fronds well into the fall – much more so than many of its brethren. Give this colorful delight a site where one wants to give life and sparkle to woodland flora. Be sure to give it sun free light shade and enjoy it in gardens from Zone 2.
