Burgundy leaves and stems display striking contrasts with long, elegant green fronds enhanced with silver overlays on each leaflet on 'Regal Red', an exciting Japanese Painted Fern. With twisted and curled tips, the dense foliage adds texture to indoor arrangements as well as shade borders.

An attention-grabber as an entrance to a woodland garden or walkway, grows 1 to 1<12FRAC> feet high with a well-behaved, spread of up to 2 feet. The fronds, measuring 8 to 20 inches, last well into the fall, giving the Fern a dense, fluffy look. Thriving in full sun, which brings out the boldest colors, or partial sun, 'Regal Red' is drought tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits

Preferring moist, well-drained soil, 'Regal Red' requires little or no maintenance. An outstanding complement to Hosta, Heuchera and other perennials that prefer shade, it also forms an attractive pairing with rock. The fronds supply naturally attractive texture in arrangements. Popular uses include borders, edging, containers and groundcover. Zones 3-8.

Love this plant!

I ordered a good many plants and seeds from Park Seed this year. I think because we had such a long, wet, cold season many people were anxious to plant - and plant anything! So, I ordered a lot, in hopes of catching up and having something growing! This fern was a good choice and I ordered three of them - two for pots and one in the ground and they are happily taking off. They are tolerating some sun well, but are glad to have the mottled shade, too. I just hope this continuing wet, rainy season won't drown them out and they will hold fast. They are lovely and would recommend. The one in the ground is next to a hosta and a Heucherella Twilight that I got from Park also., and it looks perfect.
