The Athyrium cultivars are wonderful ferns for the shade garden. The textures combine nicely with other shade garden favourites such as hosta and bergenia. The new cultivars are very tolerant of garden soils. Athyrium niponicum pictum 'Regal Red' has arching violet-red fronds edged in silver held by red-burgundy stems. Wonderful used in woodlands, other moist shady areas and containers.
