Common name: Fern-Japanese Painted 'Godzilla'
Also known as the Giant Japanese painted fern, this fern makes quite a show in the shade garden!
Massive clumps of silvery fronds with green highlights and purple stems make this plant a wow factor.
It is happiest in moist, loamy, and slightly acidic soils.
If dividing is needed, do so in spring.
Exposure: Part shade to full shade.
