Athyrium ‘Pewter Lace’

An exceptional Japanese Painted Fern with pewter metallic foliage. The deeply contrasting mid-rib in burgundy-purple is a nice plus. Tolerant of heat and humidity (will need moisture in the south). Likes a rich, fertile soil. Combines well with Tiarella and Hosta.

How Different? Compared to 'Silver Falls', it is pewter silver rather than silver. Clonal, so each plant has identical metallic pewter colored foliage. (Most ferns on the market come from spores and are very variable.)
Landscape Value It is wonderful in the shade garden, in a container, as an understory plant, or in the woodland garden.
Finish Time to 4" 8 weeks in spring.
Comments Grows slowly. Not salt tolerant. Must have 12 weeks of dormancy. Foliage color stabilizes once plant is mature. It is normal for Athyrium roots to be black.
Grower Notes Recommend transplanting to a 4" from a 72 cell size.
