FOTD The Painted Fern

I love my Japanese Painted Fern. It is always slow to get started in the spring so I mark the spot where it grows with a green stake which you can see in this photo.

It has partial shade and seems to like that. I think is really is an exquisite fern: delicate and with beautiful colors.

  2. Your photographic skill is amazing, to my remembrance I never seen this plant directly so I zoomed the picture. The picture is very clear can see the thin pink. So lovely the plant is

      It is a very interesting fern with the veins a pinkish color and the leaves green and grey. It is a bit fussy though. I have other plain green ferns that grow like mad and I have to thin them out but my little Japanese Painted beauty is not so robust.
