Athyrium Otophorum Oknum 'Eared Lady,' is a standout foliage plant that effortlessly captures attention. This tall ground cover fern offers a striking contrast in the garden, making it an excellent choice for those seeking an eye-catching landscape addition. As another remarkable Japanese fern, 'Eared Lady' adds a delightful light colour palette to your fern garden. Its new yellow fronds gradually transition to a soft, contrasting light green, beautifully complemented by vibrant red ribs. The resulting blend of yellow, purple, green, and red presents an exotic and enjoyable mix. 'Eared Lady' is known for its long-lasting fronds, and in sheltered locations, it holds onto its foliage until early winter, producing new fronds as early as February to March, much like painted ferns. This fern thrives in conditions similar to painted ferns, favouring moisture-retentive soils. Its burgundy-red contrasting stems and veins add an extra layer of charm. The 'Eared Lady' excels as a groundcover for moist, shady sites and makes a lovely addition to mixed containers or indoor arrangements. With its vigorous growth, this Japanese ferns truly stands out in the garden.
