Deciduous fern to 40cm high.
A new cross between the painted fern and the lady fern. This has the colouring of the species Athyrium nipponicum, green fronds with purple midribs and stipes. The fronds are lighter in texture and more delicate than the painted fern, shhowing the Lady fern parentage. It is a creeping fern giving very valuable ground cover in shady borders. The rhizomes are very shallow and it is not invasive. A beautiful, delicate looking yet very hardy fern.
