Applecourt Crested Painted Fern

The Crested Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum ‘Pictum Applecourt’), comes to us from Applecourt Nursery in England. It is a very bushy plant highlighted with crested forked frond tips.

With its beautiful painted coloring and flourished fronds, it is a favorite of fern cultivar lovers everywhere. Like its parent plant, it is deciduous and reaches 12″ to 24″.

This plant looks great as a specimen plant – a focal point in the garden’s foreground, or silhouette it in a prominently placed container. It is suitable for Zones 3 through 8.
