Gardening Tips for the Japanese Painted Fern
Whether you’re an established gardener or somebody just trying gardening, we hope that this Growing Wisdom video on Japanese painted fern is helpful to you. So Japanese painted fern is really a great little fern, it actually acts as a ground cover. And what I like about it is unlike a lot of other ferns that are just basically different shades of green this has a lot of color. You can see some white, some burgundy even some pink. It stays low. It tends to like moist soil or almost wet soils. This fern makes a nice choice to your wet lands or perhaps to your pond. Also if you’re landscaping around the manmade pond, this would be a neat little choice in a nook or cranny of that pond.
The fern can get about 18 inches high, but I find that it stays a little bit lower than that. It also gets to be up to two feet wide. My recommendation if you’re going to add the Japanese painted fern to the garden is to add three or more. Put them in the clamp, that color will really pop like it is on the table here if you have a mass of them rather than just one or two. The plant tolerates shade. It likes part sun, but you don’t want to put it in full sun. It will tend to burn out, and the color won’t show up quite as well.
Japanese painted fern, a nice little ground cover. Yes it’s a fern but wow! Look at the color. Come back every week for all of our tips, hints and help at Growing Wisdom.
