Athyrium 'Regal Red' - {Japanese Painted Fern)

Athyrium 'Regal Red', is a handsome fern that is equally attractive as it is easy to grow.  In the spring intensely colored fronds emerge a deep reddish-purple and slowly fade into a minty silver green with red stems.   Then, in autumn the cooler weather entices a reddish blush to the fronds before winter dieback.  This awesome plant slowly spreads by underground rhizomes and creates a lush mound in three to four years.  An absolute must for the shade garden where it contrasts nicely with heuchera, and hosta.
