Shimmer in the shade with 'Pictum'. The silver-purple sheen that covers the plant is what makes it an irresistible addition to the garden. Prefers moist soils on the woodland edge yet will tolerate more sun in cooler climates. PPA Plant of the Year 2004.
Clump forming fern. Easy to grow in part to full shade, but shows better color with some sunlight. Prefers a moist, acidic humus-rich soil, but will tolerate poorer conditions. May be divided in the spring.
