ATHYRIUM niponicum Crested Surf PPAF (Crested Surf Japanese Painted Fern) The first perennial fern addition to the Proven Winners lineup,’ Crested Surf’ looks similar in color to a traditional Japanese Painted Fern, but the tips of the fronds are double crested. A vigorous, taller variety that can fit the middle of the border. Perfect for moist, shady areas of the garden.
A Proven Winner perennial, it prefers rich, moist to well-drained soil in full shade to part shade.
