Silver Overlay on Every Leaf!

Tolerant of drought, rain, and damp soils
Plummy shades of red decorate the central stem and base of each long, elegant frond on this exciting Japanese Painted Fern, and silver overlays each leaflet. Gently twisted and curled at the tips, this foliage looks dense, adding texture to indoor arrangements as well as the shade border.

Regal Red is a showpiece of a fern, reaching 12 to 18 inches high and spreading to 2 feet wide. Best in at least some sun (to intensify the color), this drought-tolerant perennial is left alone by deer and rabbits, thrives in damp soil and rainy conditions, and pairs beautifully with everything from Hosta and Helleborus to Heuchera.

Very easy to grow and always dependable, Regal Red deserves a place of honor in your garden this season. Zones 3-8.
