The Godzilla Painted Fern is the largest variety known of the popular Japanese painted fern. It quickly develops fronds that are 3-feet long, and a clump that is 6 feet across. The large triangular fronds grow new each year, and they are divided into many narrow segments. They are colored striking shades of silver-green with dark-red markings. It is a wonderful specimen for shady places, alongside water or in a damp rock garden. Grow it beside large-leaf Hosta plants for a stunning contrast and a knock-out garden.

  • Large 3-foot decorative fronds in silver and red
  • Forms a clump 6 feet across
  • Hardy and very easy to grow
  • Plant it in any damp and shady place
  • Looks fantastic alongside big-leaf Hosta plants

Partial to full shade is best for the Godzilla Painted Fern, as it will scorch easily in full sun, especially in hot zones. Plant it in rich, damp soil, but not in flooded ground. Water regularly as this plant is not drought resistant. It needs no particular attention, isn’t bothered by pests, diseases or deer. Cut down the dead fronds in winter and feed with dilute liquid fertilizer in spring once or twice.
