Very hardy Review by Bev M - OK, Okc

I have purchased several of these ferns because they are so beautiful and very hardy. They never fail to emerge in the spring. They are slow growing but I am patient and anticipating when they will be a nice size specimen in my flower bed.

Fast growing and beautiful Review by Ludmilla - VA, Alexandria

I ordered it from Spring Hill a couple of months ago - arrived in perfect shape and has doubled in size already. Leaves are so beautiful, it's fun to see them unfold. The sharp contrast of dark red and pale green looks gorgeous. Very happy!

Stand out Review by Joleen - NC, Raleigh

This is the second year of growth. The purplish color stands out among all the other plants and adds contrast. I am buying more.

Beautiful Plant Review by Luda - VA, Alexandria
Posted on 2010-04-01

This is a beautiful plant. I also grow Burgundy Lace Japanese fern. Both came from Spring Hill. They are still very small and the only thing is that they look absolutely identical. I hope the color will change as they will mature. I read that one needs to wait for 2 winters to see the real color of this Japanese fern.

Very unique looking fern! A bit slow growing, but well worth the time. Great color and leaf pattern makes this one a showpiece among my other ferns!
