Athyrium Ghost

From the garden of Virginia’s Nancy Swell comes this stunning lady fern with silver-white fronds and a decidedly upright habit. Leaves age to light green with new fronds appearing throughout the season. Upright with a beautiful formal appearance that really stands out in the shady garden. This fern really prefers shade and will stand up with all fronds perpendicular to the ground in full sun.



Ghost fern requires full or partial shade in a rich moist soil. Ideal in a sheltered site e.g. woodlands, mixed borders and containers. Water thoroughly before planting and plant to depth of original container. Water regularly in the first year to aid establishment. Trim back old fronds in Spring before new growth emerges
