Athyrium otophorum (eared lady fern)

Athyrium otophorum

Athyrium otophorum, commonly called eared lady fern, is a deciduous, Asian woodland species which typically grows to 18″ tall and features erect, triangular, dusky green fronds with dark burgundy stems. Young pale green fronds emerge throughout the growing season which gives the foliage a two-toned appearance. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Leaf scorch and general foliage decline will occur if soils are allowed to dry out, so remember to water regularly. This species is well behaved and non-spreading and adapts well to containers.
