Pearly White Japanese Painted Fern

Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum Pearly White'

Pearly White Painted Fern

Pearly White Painted Fern is just about as creamy as Japanese Painted Fern can get. Fronds with light green edges and a white center give Pearly White an ivory green appearance that blends well with other perennials without being too white or too much of a contrast. We chose this fern because of its lack of purple color in the fronds. Pearly White has all the great attributes of Japanese Paint – Adaptability, easy culture, color and reliability. This superior selection truly lives up to its name. It is best displayed in filtered shade – direct sun will burn the foliage. Plant it as a focal point in your Zone 4 to 9 gardens where it will gradually spread to form an elegant ground cover.
