Crested Surf Japanese Painted Fern

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.
