Athyrium otophorum var. okanum

eared lady fern

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
2 litre pot £18.99

This fern is deciduous so all its fronds will die back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again each spring.

  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Perfect planted in a woodland border, shady rock garden or pots and containers, combining well with heucheras, tiarellas and pulmonarias. This award-winning deciduous, clump-forming fern has broad, arching bipinnate pale yellow-green fronds, contrasting dark purple-red stalks and midribs.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould or garden compost into the planting hole. In cold areas in late autumn protect the crown of the plant with a dry mulch of straw or bracken.
