Athyrium 'Branford Beauty' comes to us from the garden of late, legendary Connecticut gardener, Nick Nickou. Athyrium 'Branford Beauty' is a dramatic hybrid between the Japanese painted fern (Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum') and our native Southern lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina). The result is a splendid, stiffly upright, clump-forming, deer-resistant fern that reaches 3' tall x 4' wide at maturity, which for us took about 5 years. The muted colors of purple, silver, grey, and green are suffused through the foliage, which is taller and more delicate than Athyrium niponicum. Athyrium 'Branford Beauty' makes a great fern for massing in the woodland garden, as well as a striking specimen plant.
