Ferns are ancient Spirits that existed with and long before dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Before there were flowering plants, there were ferns, and they took the shape of ground-covers, shrubs, and trees. Even today, ferns give an intriguing primitive feel to the landscape like no other plant can. They make a space seem quiet and serene, providing a welcome escape from your stressful modern day-to-day routine. This species of fern is native to not only Japan but also Korea, Taiwan, and northern China. The especially colorful “Painted” form probably originated in Japan long ago.

Although Regal Red Japanese Painted Fern is one tough Spirit, treating it well will reap rewards. This means giving it a premium spot in the landscape where it will receive full shade with little sun. This fern also appreciates rich, organic soil that holds some moisture but drains well and doesn’t stay soggy after a rain.
