Athyrium niponicum var. pictum 'Burgundy Lace'

 

Lady Fern 'Burgundy Lace'

Lady Fern is a fast-growing, clump-forming fern, with arching long, pointed light green lacy lance-shaped fronds and with segments that have toothed margins. In some plants the midrib is red, in others green. 'Burgundy Lace' has silvery purple-bronze fronds. The low-growing clumps are good for edging pathways, and the plant looks terrific when planted in groups.
