We probably should call Athyrium 'Lemon Cream' Japanese splattered fern instead of Japanese painted fern. This Japanese oddity is exactly what people who like this kind of thing will like. The typical lacy green leaves are speckled with lemon cream blotches, barely evident in spring but becoming quite prominent by late summer and early fall. Our clumps of the deciduous Athyrium niponicum 'Lemon Cream' have reached 18" tall x 30" wide and truly make a "gotcha" moment in the woodland garden. The best coloration is achieved with very open shade or a couple of hours of morning sun. This was named and originally introduced to the US by plantsman Barry Yinger.
