Celebrate shade! Having a colorful garden can be a challenge if you’ve got shade, but the Apple Court Painted Fern turns shade into an asset, making sun-challenged spaces sing. This sweet spirit features jade-green foliage dusted with silver and accented with garnet-red and purple markings. It closely resembles the beloved Japanese Painted Fern, but Apple Court has something extra—the ends of its fronds have a fringe that’s ruffled and twisted. Plant this fancy but easy-to-grow fern in a border on the north or east side of your home, in a woodland garden, or in a container on a shady patio for carefree, season-long color.
