Crested Japanese Painted Fern
Our highly ornamental offerings of this genus fashion remarkable fronds sprouting from a deciduous clump that relishes shady damp recesses. Old leaves can be left standing throughout the winter and cut back in the spring, just after the new ones burst forth.
Named for the British nursery where it originated, this classy deciduous fern boasts a fanciful cresting that distinctively enhances the sides and tips of each leaf. Graceful arching triangular fronds with dark maroon midribs are bathed in tranquil gray, silver and green shades. Forging a dense colony over time from branching rhizomes, easy-care ‘Apple Court’ casts refined accents beneath shrubs and along shady paths, ponds or streams, where it adores organic-rich evenly-moist soil plus snubs deer and rabbits.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 12" – 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
