Ghost Fern | Athyrium 'Ghost'
 
Ghost Fern
Plant Features:
Ghost fern is one of the loveliest -- and most well-mannered -- ferns in the garden. A fancy hybrid of Japanese painted and lady ferns, Ghost ferns show off the best of both parents. It's a slowly spreading plant that has upright fronds brushed with silver. This fun coloration makes it a natural combination for plants such as brunnera, silvery heucheras, and lungworts. Grow Ghost fern in a spot that has moist, but well-drained soil. It prefers lots of organic matter in the soil, so amend with compost, especially if you have sand or clay. Ghost fern also does best if it has consistent soil moisture; don't allow it to dry out.
