Athyrium niponicum 'Crested Surf'
Regular price $12.00
This Japanese Painted Fern has the familiar Painted Fern coloration, with a little extra pizzazz. Athyrium niponicum 'Crested Surf' has red stemmed, green fronds highlighted by silver and red patterns. The unique thing about this clump-forming shade dweller is the way the tip of each frond splits into a frilly fan shape, like a wave crashing into a billowing froth. In the plant world, this phenomenon is called cresting. Cool! Athyrium niponicum 'Crested Surf' tops out a bit bigger than the standard Japanese Painted Fern, but is an easy-to-grow hosta companion in a shady spot that doesn't dry out too much. PPAF
