Ghost Fern

Athyrium 'Ghost'

SKU
1876
A haunting new hybrid is surprisingly elegant with its rigidly upright gray-green foliage. Neat, formal fronds reflect an almost fluffy look as light plays off the metallic sheen. A natural for the woodland garden with upscale attributes. A natural for high profile shaded foundation planting and outdoor living spaces beneath shade canopies and arbors. Deserves a place front and center. Herbaceous fern. Partial to full shade. Vigorous grower 2 to 3 feet tall and wide.
