The Japanese Painted Fern is a shade-loving fern known for its striking fronds, which blend silvery-grey, green, and purplish-red hues. It grows to about 12-18 inches in height and 18-24 inches wide with a clumping habit. It thrives in partial to full shade, well-drained, rich, and consistently moist soil. Regular watering and occasional fertilization in the spring support its growth. It's generally resistant to pests and diseases. Ideal for shady garden areas, woodland gardens, and containers, it pairs well with other shade-loving plants. Propagation is typically done through division in spring or early fall.
