(Fern) Athyrium 'Ghost' is a deciduous fern that is easily grown in organically rich, well-drained soil. The unique color and shape of 'Ghost' is acquired from its parents. The silvery foliage is from the Japanese Painted Fern (Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum') parent, and the upright habit comes from the Southern Lady Fern (Athyrium filix-femina) parent. 'Ghost' can reach up to 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide, creating a beautiful back drop for your hostas and heucheras, in your shade to part shade gardens. The best silvery coloration is displayed in the spring. As the temperatures warm, a grayish-green color appears. Athyrium 'Ghost' has better drought tolerance that most ferns, although we do not recommend letting it dry out. Hardy in zones 3-8, 'Ghost' is well suited for woodland shade gardens, container gardens or as a garden border. The attractive foliage can be used as greenery accents in floral arrangements.
