Japanesse painted fern

I live in northern new york which has a relatively short growing season and gets very cold in the winters. This plant comes back year after year and makes a beautiful contrast to surrounding plants. Despite it being just a fern it is one of my favorite plants

I was in the hospital for over 2 months and sadly no one took care of my plants. When I got home most of my plants were dead or almost dead. my little ferns were nothing more than sticks and one wasn't even there anymore. I was so sad because these are very beautiful when healthy, they really look like someone took the time to paint them. Well good news is that I didn't rip out the sticks but just left them where they were and a week ago I just happened to walk by my graveyard of plants and these ferns were BACK just as beautiful as before. They came back from nothing with no help from me and a little bit of rain. If you don't have a green thumb or need a few plants that are hardy I highly recommend these painted ferns they are beautiful and apparently come back from the dead
