Athyrium ‘Ocean’s Fury’
A silvered salute, this fern was named 'Ocean's Fury' because the habit and coloring are reminiscent of ocean waves crashing on the shore. This large, upright, and crested hybrid fern from Thurman Maness is a wonderful addition to lighten up your shady areas or in the woodland garden. It prefers fertile, moist soil.
