Unique CharactersticsLow growing, clump forming fern with burgundy, pink and silver tones blended beautifully as if a skilled artist created each leaflet. Thrives in moist soil rich in organic matter but will tolerate clay soils better than other ferns. Great shade addition next to chartreuse green plants.
