Athyrium niponicum, Japanese painted fern. I love this fern for its graceful lines and interesting colors, ease of growing, and general hardiness. These fronds are part of a clump that has been growing under a redbud (Cersis canadensis) tree for more than fifteen years. Its other companion, the plain green leaves in the picture, is Maianthemum racemosum, false Solomon's seal. The painted fern prefers a moist environment but tolerates short periods of dryness because it is in a shady spot. Actually, every plant growing in Omaha needs to tolerate at least a little dryness.
