Fern Athyrium niponicum var. pictum
This ornamental fern was the 2004 Perennial Plant Association’s Plant of the Year. Choice and variegated with green, gray, and purple foliage and a neat habit. Creeps slowly. Likes moist, highly organic soil.
Ferns’ fine feathery textures make them the ultimate shade foliage plant. Most do best with even moisture and part shade. Ferns either creep with underground rhizomes or stay in a cluster – see note for each variety.
