The exquisite simplicity of the Ghost Fern is the perfect plant to add a touch of sophistication to your home, garden, or floral arrangements. Also known botanically as Athyrium Niponicum Ghost, this deciduous fern features an eye-catching silvery foliage, which inspired its name. The muted color of the leaves is complemented beautifully by dark red midribs. The Ghost fern is a hardy foliage plant that makes a great indoor and outdoor ornament, and it's extremely easy to grow, too. All it needs is moist, organically-rich, and well-drained soil as well as a spot with partial sun and the Athyrium Fern will thrive freely. Naturally, regular watering is important in keeping the soil from drying out and the plant from wilting.

The upright appearance of the Ghost Fern adds to its appeal as it provides structure to the general design scheme of a garden or flower bouquet. The silvery grey hue of the foliage is most intense during spring, and it slowly acquires a tinge of green as warmer months approach. The Athyrium Fern can grow as tall as 35" and is shunned by deer and rabbits. In the garden, this plant works best when placed near ponds or streams, in woodland or shade gardens, and shaded border fronts.
