Athyrium niponicum ‘Ghost’


Athyrium 'Ghost' has silver-grey foliage on large, upright plants.

‘Ghost’ is a cross between lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina) and Japanese painted fern (A. niponicum ‘Pictum’). The result is a clump-forming rigidly upright large fern with ghostly silver-grey foliage and dark stems. It will grow between two and three feet tall with a similar spread. Plant anywhere in shade, even in rather dry conditions.
