(syn: A. iseanum) This rarely offered species from Japan is the more common, naturally occurring, version of what we know as the Japanese painted fern. While the growth habit is the same (a 2' wide clump), each dark green frond is highlighted by a dark purple central leaf stipe. This easy-to-grow fern is perfect for making a large woodland mass.
